Maramures 3: Bogdan Vodă, Dragomireşti, Borsa, Prislop)
Maramures is a remote region in the extreme north of the country. This is the place where ancient traditions, the folk costumes and old art are preserved like nowhere else in Romania. It is virtually a vast museum in open air. It is probably the richest place in Romania in authentic ethnographic and folklore elements. Men are amazingly skillful wood carvers, and you shouldn't be surprised that all the old houses and churches are entirely made of wood. Ethnographically it is a treasury of old customs and rites still surviving.
