Maramures is a land where ancient traditions are preserved to this day. A place where wood carving is still an occupation instead of a hobby, and where some women still wash their woolen rugs in the natural whirlpools instead of a washing machine.
Maramures is also the place where you'll find probably the happiest cemetery in the world, entitled The Merry Cemetery. Life's simplicity around this land can be also observed by visiting the Wooden Churches of Maramures, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999.
Every Sunday is an occasion for donning the traditional costume, which looks the same as it did hundreds of years ago. On feast days, lavish ceremonies are organized, where song and dance entertain and engage all those in attendance, locals and visitors alike. Anyone who visits these places soon finds a friend among the old folks chatting at the gate or among the farmers working in the fields because all of them have learned that hospitality is priceless, irrespective of how little wealth one has.
