Maramures is Romania’s bastion of folklore and pastoral village life, and known as the soul of the country. One of Romania’s most traditional rural regions, you just might find yourself entering a farm-house through an ornately carved gate – the larger the gateway the more socially prominent the family. Maramures is a microcosm of an old world Romania that is swiftly fading into the modern landscape of Europe. Wooden homes with sloping roofs and eves stand like shy testimonials to a simpler way of life, while ancient wooden churches have a mysterious gravity. Automobiles compete with horse carts on the narrow winding roads and cows graze peaceably in the fields. This is where you will experience the heart of Romanian culture, its vivid folk tales, vibrant folk music, and the simple warm hospitality of its people.
