Romania & Bulgaria - Maramures (Chapter)
This is the Maramures chapter from Lonely Planet’s Romania & Bulgaria guidebook.
Widely regarded as Romania’s most traditional region, scattered with gothically steepled wooden churches and villagers’ homes fronted by ornately carved gates, Maramures feels as if you are climbing into a horse-drawn time machine and heading back 100 years.
