They say Maramures people are “Romania’s Celts”.
Lately, they have almost “invaded” Bucharest; there is no week without a fair where they are invited.
And they impress us with their beautifully handmade traditional costumes. And their particular type of dance, resembling a little with the Irish one. So full of colour and energy.
Maramures traditional music is always accompanied with special instruments like the violin named “cetera“ and the five string guitar, called “zongora“.
The people of this historic region situated in the northern part of Romania have preserved unaltered traditions, from folk costumes, music and dance, to the cycle of life with its three important moments, baptism, marriage and funeral.
Traditional dance & music, “The Merry Cemetery“ in Sapanta, the old wooden churches (many of them declared UNESCO World Heritage monuments), genuine homemade food and drink, are just a few of Maramures attractions. For a close look at what Maramures has to offer, you can start planning your visit here.
