The majority of them depict scenes from the Bible with emphasis on Judgement Day. Even if you’re not a religious individual, you can appreciate the work and talent put into creating these masterpieces. Barsana Monastery and other several wooden churches in Maramures are also important attractions in this part of the country. Everywhere you will go you will be greeted by welcoming and warm people and you will have the chance to enjoy some very delicious dishes prepared after traditional recipes.

With other words, Romania is a destination that is worthy of your time and attention. After a visit here you will be looking for reasons to return as soon as possible.
