Visited a lot of monasteries. But this one really made it to the top. Picturesque, peaceful, plus the well defined structures. Everything is perfect. I would definitely come back in Maramures and visit the monastery.

great places (I think that you have at least 10 different but similar churches to see) to show how the locals were constructing their churches of wood. some are quite well preserved so select carefully which ones you want to see.

From many wooden churches in Maramures County, 8 are listed in UNESCO World Heritage. They are very beautiful, unique in the world and in some of the most pitoresque area in Europe!

Wooden churches are symbols of Maramures region. And the style of them are really adorable. Some of them are from the 17th century and preserved up to our date which is unbeliavable. Try to visit at least one:)
