 FAMOUS FOR ITS MERRY CEMETERY

 
 

Wooden Gates in MaramuresMaramures, located in Northern Transylvania, is one of the few areas in this part of the world that was not dominated by the Romans. Combine this with tougher terrain that kept the communist led systemization of small villages out of this region, and you will be welcomed to a land that time truly has forgotten.

The people here live a unique lifestyle that has been preserved for many years. Wooden churches with exquisite Merry Cemetry in Sapantawooden sculptures can be found scattered through the mountains. The ancient village of Sapanta has become famous for its Merry Cemetery; called this because each grave stone cross contains an illustration and a poem depicting the person’s life in a humorous way. The crosses are carved in wood by local artists and painted blue. The cemetery is one of the biggest attractions world-wide among funeral monuments.

Wooden Church in MaramuresAfter a history of being divided between several countries such as Czechoslovakia, Russia (USSR), Ukraine and nevertheless Romania, only the southern part of the original territory is now a part of the Romanian county Maramures and the separation remains a wound never to be healed. Due to its remote isolation , Maramures preserves the untouched culture and modest lifestyle of a medieval peasant past. The beautiful rural scenery with few paved roads, the astonishing landscapes and the hospitality of the locals create the feeling of a leap in a time machine. It is the home of 8 UNESCO world heritage monuments and traditional crafts such as wood sculpting, ceramics, textiles, traditional costumes and jewelry, each with Maramures Local Lifea signature so unique in the world, it cannot be reproduced. Take for example the wooden church of Surdesti, built in 1721 with its steeple claimed to be the tallest wooden structure in the world, or the church of Surdesti, famous for its interior paintings, the beauty of the glass and wooden icons; each monument has a fascinating legend to tell and the locals are more than happy to share them.
