Want a cultural adventure? Enjoy authentic traditions and experience the winter’s religious feasts with more depth in Maramures, where the fantastic pre-Christian customs are mingled with peculiar folk habits. You may be not just a spectator, but part of it, because the whole festivity takes place in the street, not on a stage. Maramures is one of the most remote and unchanged areas of Europe, therefore, here the folk traditions are still alive. The landscape is very rural and unspoiled with rolling hills and meadows where people live here like hundreds of years ago. One of the highlight moment of the trip is the excursion with the steam train named Mocanita in the Vasser valley. It is a journey through beautiful countryside.

Experience and remember, the Christmas means more than good food and to buy presents.

***

Horse and cart is still a widely used in agriculture. The homespun blankets and the richly embroidered traditional clothes are so exotic like the Inka`s. The people in Maramures are skillful in carving impressive wooden gates. The narrow wooden churches are built without using nails which attest the craftsmanship of the local masters. Enjoy a dip in the rural life of Maramures, workshops in traditional crafts, and the unforgettable taste of the traditional drink “horinca ” ( liquor )
