Ne lamentam acum ceva timp ca serviciul ce asigura functionarea Centrului de informare turistica din Maramures a fost desfiintat, tocmai dupa ce au fost informati ca judetul a fost desemnat de revista National Geographic Traveler una dintre cele 21 "Best of the World" destinatii turistice pentru anul 2015. Acum avem si dovada, publicata tocmai la timp sa avem de ce ne mandri de 1 decembrie, pe langa defilari de tancuri suginite.
In the historic Land of Maramureș, the hills are alive with ways long forgotten elsewhere in Europe. “My cows don’t like grass that is cut with a machine,” Ion Pop says while harvesting his meadow near the village of Botiza. “They prefer the clean taste of handcut.”
The splendor is not just in the grass. In this remote northwest corner of Romania 300 miles from Bucharest, the schedule is set by the seasons, the weather, tradition. In each of the five valleys, with their meandering rivers and haystack-dotted fields, life plays out as it has for hundreds of years—though one recent change is telling.
Maramureș is a wooden world. The farm tools are made of wood, and wooden gates, chiseled with century-old motifs, form the glorious entrances to modest yards around wooden, steep-roofed houses. UNESCO-designated churches from the 17th and 18th centuries tell stories of faith and glory, saints and sinners, crime and punishment, through still vivid paintings on their wooden walls.
