Maramures villages are distinguished by their unique wooden churches with tall spires and shingled roofs. Traditional Carved Gates in Maramures, emphasize that wood has long been - and continues to be - the medium of expression for the region’s artisans. Elaborate woodcarvings decorate the eaves, entryways and windows of houses. The local handiwork is also seen in the hand-woven carpets and intricate embroidery that adorns folk dresses still worn by the locals.
The Maramures churches are outstanding examples of vernacular religious wooden architecture resulting from the interchange of Orthodox religious traditions with Gothic influences in a specific local interpretation of timber construction traditions, showing a high level of artistic maturity and craft skills.
