Guided tour in Transylvania the land “beyond the forests” (from the latin “Ultra silvam”), a land of beauty and wonders. Its very name conjures up visions of thickly forested peaks, sweet waved valleys and sparkling streams, visions of high-roofed wooden churches, medieval towns, mysterious castles and a troubled history.
Maramures, abode of culture and civilisation, which has carved in wood its own history, is the place where traditions, popular garb and art are preserved like nowhere else in Romania. During the tour in the Maramures you will uncover a huge open-air museum. Daily life of the Maramures village is a real return in time.
A cradle of old civilisation, where history blends with legend, Bucovina is known for its famous painted monasteries – UNESCO patrimony: Moldovita, Sucevita, Voronet, Humor.
