It is really possible in Romania. Admire unique churches with wooden architecture. Some of the Moldavian monasteries have been part of the UNESCO World Heritage since 1993.

Tour details

We continue to your very special accommodation.

Enjoy your stay in the Carpathian Mountains. "Casa cu Cerbi" is an authentically restored farmhouse on a real farm in Bukovina. If you don't want to hike around the area, try some of the farm's local products, play with the house cat, or explore the old family photos of the farmhouse.

In the afternoon, eat on an authentic farm that is on your way to the next 2 monasteries: Humor and Voronet.

Kloster Humor UNESCO Welterbe

Humor Monastery was founded in 1530. Not much is left of the old fortification walls. The defense tower dates from 1641. In 1535 the church was frescoed. It is the oldest preserved Bukovina church with external frescoes. It is dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin Mary and Saint George.

Unlike the Humor Monastery, Voronet has a tower that hides the famous Moldovan dome (see also below). Humor Monastery and Voronet Monastery (10-15 minutes drive from each other) are the best preserved medieval sites on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Frohes Friedhof sapanta

We continue to a unique happy cemetery.

The cheerful cemetery now houses around 800 crosses painted blue. Each cross shows a carved picture in the upper part, which evokes an important moment in the life of the deceased. Carved texts depict the life of the buried in a humorous way. Even if you are not fluent in the Romanian language, just looking at the carved pictures is an absolute highlight.

Back to your accommodation where you have dinner.

5th day

Good Morning! After breakfast at the inn, visit a very special remote village where you can also have lunch.

Breb, also called the Valley of the Beaver, is one of the most remote villages in Maramures. The small village is very well known in Great Britain, since some properties belong to the heir to the throne, Prince Charles. The village is very beautiful and, above all, well preserved, which is why National Geographic Traveler recommended the Maramures region in the top 20 travel destinations in 2015.

Breb abgelegenes Dorf

On your way back to the inn, visit the wooden church of Barsana.

On your way back to your accommodation, visit another UNESCO protected church. The church of Ieud is one of the oldest wooden churches in Maramures and is not only worth seeing because of its historical construction and the artistic frescos, but also houses the oldest Romanian script.
