Stroll or cycle through villages and meadows in the heart of Maramureș
Discover the wood culture of Maramureș.
Between the valleys of Mara and Cosău rivers, bordered to the south by volcanic mountains, there is an island of authentic traditional life, part of the historic Maramureș, which still amazes ethnographers and philologists. The mosaic-like landscapes with alpine meadows, hay meadows, streams, orchards and secular forests stretch harmoniously along areas of wilderness, home to the brown bear, lynx, wild boar and wolf.
