This thing is enormous, made of wood in the 1720s, and still standing in good shape. It was closed, but we were able to look through the windows, and the outside is just incredible. An amazing structure.

This is one of the most beautiful wooden churches in Maramures, very well preserved. The person in charge is very friendly and welcoming. There's the typical Maramures atmosphere inside (traditional blankets and carpets, decorations that you can find in the homes of Maramures as well)....More
