Today’s journey is going to take us to Maramureş, one of Romania’s the most traditional regions. Each and every house and church used to be built out of wood, as woodcarving is still one of the most popular occupations in this area. Almost each and every house has a wooden gate, a loom and a small bank, were people gather every evening to catch up with the latest gossip, play cards or weave. Leaving Cluj-Napoca we reach our first destination of the day: the wooden church of Şurdeşti. For a long time this church was considered to be the religious building with the highest tower in the Maramureş. The interior of the church is of a rare simplicity and beauty: on the walls one can see many scenes from the Old and New Testament, such as the life and works of the Prophet Elias and the Judgment Day. Although the church is under UNESCO patronage, it is still being used each day by the local community, who has decorated it with several handmade carpets and towels. Our next stop will be at one of the most important village Barsana in the valley of the Iza River. We will see and discover church, which now stands on a small hill surrounded by an orchard, is one of the eight churches on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Here we will visit to Bârsana church and Bârsana monastery. Our next and lust place of this tour will be one of the most interesting sights in the Maramureş: the merry cemetery of Săpânţa and Peri Sapanta monastery. An old tradition, dating back 2000 years ago, gives the locals the belief in life after death. This is the reason why death is seen as something normal, as a next step in life. This was the starting point of the cemetery 50 years ago, when a local artist decided to paint funny scenes on the cross of a deceased, something that would later on turn this cemetery into a unique resting place across the world. The tradition is still being continued today, as the cemetery is full of crosses telling funny, uncensored stories about boozers, Lovelace and communist party members. From Săpânţa we will return to Cluj.
