Day 3: Sighisoara – Wooden Churches - Sighetu Marmatiei (320 km)

In this day we will visit the wooden churches of Maramures . Following the Iza and Mara rivers, we admire the impressive landscapes and visit some of the oldest churches made of wood, special places within UNESCO's patrimony, as well as a row of Maramures gates, authentic rustic triumphal arches.

In the afternoon we will head to Sapanta where we will visit the Merry Cemetery. The wooden colourful crosses, sculpted and painted by craftsman Stan Patras and his appretince, Dumitru Pop, turned it into an authentic open air museum. The colours of the crosses and the humorous texts on them capture for eternity the essential episodes of life and show the strength of the Romanian people, who do not fear of death.

Accommodation in Sighet, 3* pension, breakfast included.
