Thank you!
Plopis is one of the seven villages of Şişeşti commune in Maramureş County, Romania. The Wooden Church of Plopis (one of the 8 UNESCO wooden churches in Maramures) 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.

    Thank you Johndemi for adding it to your favorites. Yes, the voice is unusual: Maria Tănase (1913 – 1963) was a renowned Romanian singer of Romanian traditional or non-contemporary folklore. She toured many times in the last 15 years of her life, including over forty trips to New York City. She represented Romania at the International Exhibition in Paris in 1937, as well as at the 1939 New York World's Fair. During World War II, together with George Enescu, George Vraca and Constantin Tănase, she performed in a series of shows for soldiers injured on the battlefield. (The character of Floricica in the first novel of Olivia Manning's Fortunes of War trilogy is supposed to have been based upon Maria Tănase).

    'Las iglesias de madera de Maramureș son una selección de ocho ejemplos de diferentes soluciones arquitectónicas de distintos períodos y zonas. Son altas construcciones en madera con característicos campanarios delgados y altos en el extremo occidental de los edificios. Son un tipo de arquitectura popular muy propia del paisaje cultural de esta zona montañosa en el norte de Rumanía'.
