Wooden Churches of Maramures

Maramures is truly a 'wood civilization' and nowhere is that more visible than in its wooden churches. Piercing the sky with their tall, pointy steeples, these monuments are the expression of a community that lives in harmony with nature.

 

The Fortified Churches

Some of the most striking and valuable treasures of Romania are owed to the German populace that settled in Transylvania starting with the 13th century, known as Saxons, or “sasi” in Romanian.
Probably the best known elements of Saxon heritage are all the fortified churches in Romania, some of which were inducted in the UNESCO World Heritage for their great cultural and historical value.
