In Maramures, Romania you must see the Barsana Monastery

In the heart of Maramures, hidden between rolling hills and quaint villages, not far from the must-see Mocanita Steam Train, you will find the Barsana Monastery. I have called Maramures the keeper of traditions. This monastery, although only recently built, has kept tradition by constructing its buildings out of wood in the typical Maramures style. You will notice the wood is a light color, not yet darkened by the elements, as is the wood of the hundred-year old wooden churches dotting the Maramures landscape. Impeccably kept grounds with blooming flowers, beautiful architecture, a place of spirituality and peace.
