  • 5 The Apuseni Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    RO - Brad

    Separating the Crisana from Transylvania, these mountains constitute an open-air ethnographic museum. Its karstic-relief landscape is often beautiful and sometimes spectacular, with villages tucked away in valleys or standing on hillsides. It is not ..

  • 6 Bear's Cave Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    RO - Chiscau

    Discovered in 1975, this cave owes its name to the skeleton of a bear which supposedly became trapped here 20 000 years. The story goes that there were around 100 others in the same predicament and this, the last survivor, devoured them all. This var..

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    Nature and gardens

  • 11 Village Museum Recommended Recommended

    Museums and art

    RO - Sighetu Marmatiei

    On a hilltop site with fine views, the museum has a collection of typical Maramures buildings set in a pleasant rustic landscape. Visiting these structures, which are furnished and decorated, gives a clearer idea of the carpenters' skills. Don't miss..

  • 12 Sapânta Cemetery Recommended Recommended

    Religious buildings

    RO - Sapânta

    Odd though it is to describe a cemetery as joyful, this is the best description for the one in the village of Sapânta, a veritable work of art in the naïf style by Ion Stan Patras (1908-1977). It has around 700 blue painted crosses enhanced in liveli..

  • 13 Church of St Paraskevi Recommended Recommended

    Religious buildings

    RO - Desesti

    Str. Cerbului nr. 5 RO - Viseu de Sus

    At the foot of the Maramures mountains, the little town of Viseu de Sus has derived its income from the wood trade since the 18C. To get the felled trees to the sawmills, a railway line was built in the 1930s. It runs for 42km along the Vaser Valley ..

  • 15 Arbore Church Recommended Recommended

    Religious buildings

    RO - Arbore

    Strangely bereft of a bell tower, this church founded in 1503 is less visited than its better-known Bukovina neighbours. It is covered in paintings (where green predominates) executed by Coman Dragos in 1541. This itinerant artist added Renaissance t..

  • 16 Church of the Three Hierarchs Recommended Recommended

    Religious buildings

    Bd. Stefan cel Mare si Sfant, nr. 28 RO - Iasi

  • 17 Cetatuia Monastery Recommended Recommended

    Religious buildings

    RO - Iasi

    Among the Bucium vineyards stand the ramparts of this monastery, founded in the 17C by Gheorghe Duca (reigned 1668-1672). Its watch towers, fine doorway topped by a pointed roof and embellished with Moldavian aurochs justify its classification as a &..

  • 18 Probota Monastery Recommended Recommended

    Religious buildings

    RO - Probota

    Less visited than other monasteries in Bukovina, Probota is nonetheless also a Unesco world heritage site. All that remains of Moldavia's oldest monastery (1398) are the perimeter walls and the odd vestige. Built in 1530 by Petru Rares, the church re..

  • 19 The Neamt Recommended Recommended

    Nature and gardens

    RO - Piatra-Neamt

    Irrigated by the River Bistrita, the region lies to the south of Bukovina. Like its neighbour, this western Moldavian region has monasteries ( Varatec, Agapia, Neamt...) set in a pleasant landscape, an ideal backdrop for the contemplative life. Cover..
