The green heart of Maramureș
The Eco Maramureș ecotourism destination is an island of authentic life, where nature and the locals have joined hands to create a unique cultural landscape. As a testimony, we have the villages which still preserve the architecture of Maramureș, with wooden houses, gates, and churches, where life unfolds slowly as if there were no worries at all. Here, there is Creasta Cocoșului (The Rooster’s Crest), in the Gutâi Mountains, a huge nine million-year-old cliff, made of magmatic rock. There are also lakes and forests, habitats for birds and mammals, and meadows with unique flora and healing herbs.
Come to the village of Breb to discover some of what this area has to offer! You can follow the easy hiking route that starts from the Church of Breb, for an experience in nature that will reveal the surroundings of the village, with hay meadows, orchards, and hay stacks scattered as far as the eye can see. On the way back, you can admire the specific local architecture, experience life in the village, and feel that you are a vibrant part of the local community.
