One of the 8 UNESCO wooden churches in Maramures, the Wooden Church of Plopis was erected in 1798 and it stands 47 meters high. The church is an amazing display of wooden architecture and carving techniques. The paintings inside are made by a local artist and aren't very well preserved.
Maramureşul, vatră de cultură şi civilizaţie care şi-a dăltuit în lemn istoria, este locul unde tradiţiile, portul şi arta populară se păstrează ca nicăieri altundeva în România. Maramureşul este un imens muzeu în aer liber, iar viaţa de zi cu zi a satului maramureşan este o adevărata întoarcere în timp.
Bisericile de lemn - bijuterii de artă populară - se întâlnesc aproape în fiecare sat. Opt dintre acestea aparţin patrimoniului mondial UNESCO
They call the Wooden Churches of Maramures “the sleeping beauties” or “the sleeping princesses.” I have no clue why or who started this metaphor, but if you look at them, you have to agree: they have a royal beauty with their slim tall towers and their delicate bodies. It’s almost a wonder that they’ve resisted time and weather.
Some of the Wooden Churches of Maramures are part of the UNESCO’s world heritage since 1999. No wonder: take a look at their stunning beauty, the superb craftsmanship that gives them this noble allure and behold their uniqueness.
