Maramures Classic Tour is a 2 days tour that will allow you to step back in time and to discover the soul of rural Romania. The region of Maramures preserved the culture, traditions and lifestyle of the peasants from a romantic era of simplicity, pride and moral values.
To get in Maramures we will drive on pictoresque mountain roads, rolling hills with meadows full of wildflowers and charming small villages. Once there you will be impressed by the Wooden Churches (UNESCO World Heritage), with their "maramuresan gotic" architectural style, they can reach more than 50 meters (165 ft) with their interiors painted with biblical scenes in a naif style by the local painters in the 17th and 18th centuries.
Maramures is a very surprising region and you will be very surprised to see the Merry Cemetery of Sapanta, a one of a kind cemetery with its vivid colors, where each cross has diffrent carved images and a short poem written in the first person, like a confession or a life story.
To have a complete experience in Maramures you must try the traditional dishes, meet the locals and learn more about the traditional crafts. In order to do all these things we recommend to chose a homestay in a small village instead of a hotel.
