Discover Maramureş County


Discover Maramureş County

Many people have heard about Maramureş. The Happy Graveyard from Săpȃnța is known both in the country and abroad. A lot of pictures and images have circulated on the internet. But Maramureș is so much more than that.cimitirul vesel sapanta

For those having trouble locating the county, it is situated in the North-West of Romania, its residence being in Baia Mare.

Four distinctive ethnology-folkloric regions – Chioar’s Country (Țara Chioarului), Lapus’s Country (Țara Lăpușului), Maramures’s Country (Țara Maramureșului) and the Forest Country (Țara Codrului) – make the actual county.

According to Wikipedia, the ethnic structure is as follows:

  • Romanians – 418405
  • Hungarians – 46300
  • Ukrainians – 34027
  • Gipsies – 8913
  • Germans – 2012

There are countless attractive sights, the local culture from Maramureș being so rich in working with wood, fashion art, cooking art, dramatic art, theatrics and ceramics.

Unfortunately however, the recent attempts to modernise the architecture of this region have failed. Nonetheless, Maramureș remains a dreamland.


I will let you discover a video made by the Zig Zag team who spent a month in this county and walked through a lot of wonderful places, and met a lot of great people who have enriched them spiritually and intellectually.

So, when are you planning a trip to Maramureş?

  1. Remarcabila ideea voastra de a descrie Romania asa cum este ea vazuta prin ochii vostri, dar, atata timp cat oricum vad ca este pornit ca un proiect bilingv, mi-as dori ca fiecare articol sa aiba si o versiune in limba romana.

    Da, e evident un lucru bun sa atragem turisti straini in Romania, dar cred ca e, cel putin la fel de important, sa atragem si romanii nostri catre acele zone care chiar merita sa fie vizitate.

    • Mulțumim pentru comentariu Bogdan. Într-adevăr, articolele vor fi propuse ȋn ambele limbi ȋn același timp. Acum suntem ȋn faza de traducere a conținutului publicat ȋn trecut. Articolul despre Maramureș este mai vechi și apare ca recentă doar versiunea ȋn engleză pentru că a fost tradus nu demult, ȋnsă ȋn viitor toate articolele vor fi propuse ȋn 2 limbi ȋn același timp.

      • Multumesc de lamuriri. 🙂

        O alta sugestie atunci – de ce nu un link catre versiunea in romana direct in articol (si, bineinteles, invers, un link catre versiunea in engleza din articolul in romana) – practic ce ai facut tu pentru mine aici in comentariu, dar pentru toti (si pentru toate articolele), direct in textul articolului. 🙂
