Land of Chioar

The land of Chioar is interesting but less researched in comparison to the historic province of Maramures. Appealing folk literature, music and dance are still alive in the villages of the Chioar Country. They are related to local traditions such as wedding, funerals, husking bees.


The variety of the relief-rainging from riverside meadows to highlands- has a bearing on the structure of human settlements, that run from scattered homesteads to clustered homesteads.
