To have an authentic experience of a disappearing culture we recommend that you go to Maramures now.
Maramures is known as the soul of Romania where peasants live off the land as they have done for centuries.
This is the last corner of the continent where plowing, planting, harvesting, and hay-making are still done by hand. Idyllic villages on rolling hills all handmade of wood; old ladies cooking outside on wood burning stoves, hand pumping water from a well; sheep herding in the streets, milk in old steel kegs being delivered by horse drawn wooden carts, or carts piled with hay. Ox drawn carts, loaded with potatoes and the whole family piled on top. Animals absolutely everywhere grazing in lush green fields.
We can help you see the hidden corners of this amazing region, the UNESCO protected churches; the famous Merry Cemetery. Having an experienced Exeter international guide with you in Maramures really makes a difference so that you can communicate with the wonderful warm locals.
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.
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. Immerse yourself in Maramures with Exeter International.
