In Maramureș, the culture, customs, and all the temperate lifestyle were kept untouched by time, reflecting the spirituality and the idyllic image of the Romanian village. The wood tradition is still an important part of Maramureș life and every person living here is very proud of it. The towering churches that rise to the sky, the gates of Maramureș, the houses of the peasants of Maramureș, all built of wood, remind of all the traditions and the old and beautiful days. In Maramureș, the traditions have been preserved and, with great joy, you can still see people dressed in traditional clothes for field and housework.
Entering the village, among the settlements of the people, we happily discover the Museum of Maramureș Village, located in Sighetul Marmației, which is an opportunity for every tourist or visitor to take an incredibly beautiful tour among old wooden houses, carved gates, and twig fences. Moreover, because we like to pedal from time to time, we will embark on a bicycle adventure through the beautiful villages of Maramures, to enjoy the picturesque and natural beauty of the area.
The waters of Maramureș lead us to the Vaser Valley, where a wonderful, unmissable tourist route is organized. Mocănița, an extremely picturesque steam train, runs through this valley. This train is made up of two types of wagons: closed or in the form of a terrace, from where tourists can admire the beautiful landscape of the valley.
Maramureș is a land with a lot of history, an oasis of peace, calm and simplicity. The Maramureș plains remind us of the joy of quiet life, of kinds word, of the grandparents who welcome us with open arms and prove once again that the richness of nature is abundant for all those who have time to stop and observe it.
