  • There are as many as 8 UNESCO protected churches in the region of Maramures, a vast rural area where you can breathe clean air scents of the countryside, simple, genuine and friendly people. In the 14th century the Hungarians forbade the building of stone Orthodox churches, and so the carpenters began building wooden churches of Maramures, true masterpieces come down to us intact. Externally they look like it can get a little creepy and austere with their soaring steeples and the dark colors of the wood, but inside are alive and colorful, thanks to the frescoes with scenes from the Bible and rural lifestyle, decorated in an original style naive from congregations that are attending. The most beautiful in my opinion are those of Surdesti and Budesti.

  • Why does every church there is your website? All are worth it, and separate information can only be found on the Barsany, Surdesti and Desesti. And where information about Budesti (also under the protection of UNESCO), whether the Iued or Calinesti? They are all beautiful and all deserve to visit them. I am attaching pics of a few of them. I strongly recommend to all!
