History and tratition - five days tour in Maramures and Bucovina regions

The tallest wooden church in Europe

The tour will first follow the Maramures two day trip, which we separately have on offer and then, after passing the Eastern Carpathians, will explore the famous painted monasteries in the region of Bucovina. We will be accommodated in traditional guesthouses both in Maramures and Bucovina regions, where our hosts will gladly offer their traditional homemade meals.
Maramures region (north est of Romania), well known as “the woodland” for its woodworks - houses, gates and impressive churches, is undoubtedly one of the last Romanian traditional regions, the best remedy for the stresses of everyday life in our modern, overcrowded cities. We are usually welcomed with open arms, in this beautiful land, by people fiercely proud of their history and traditions. Our journey to Maramures will include the most famous wooden churches, such as – Budesti, Barsana, Poienile Izei, Ieud, many of them listed on the UNESCO world heritage patrimony, The Communist Prison in Sighet, The Merry Cemetery in Sapanta and also The Monastery of Sapanta, where is located the tallest wooden church in Europe.
We highly recommend that the program should be open for changes considering that Maramures region has many local traditions, specific events and festivals, country fairs, religious celebrations, and many others.

Bucovina region (north west of Romania) is worldwide famous for the beauty of its forests and especially for the „arhipelago of monasteries” raised five hundred years ago by great Moldovian rullers and patrons of art. Each church has its specific colour: Voronet, also called "the Sistine Chapel of the East" (blue), Humor (red), Sucevita (green), Moldovita (yellow) and Arbore (combination of colours). All these monasteries, due to their outter paintings (frescos) have received in 1976 the "Pomme d'or" prize of FIJET International Organization for their cultural and touristic value; also five of them have been included on the UNESCO’s world heritage sites list.
Maramures and Bucovina regions are known for their strong Romanian traditions, mostly kept in the rural areas, and the refinment of the folk artists, who are masters in weaving, pottery, painting icons on wood or glass, preserving customs related to the most important events in one’s life (birth, wedding and death) or to the main holidays during the entire year.
