The land of wooden churches, mythological richness, impressive landscapes and very ancient customs

Home » Places To Go » Monasteries


Although not as old as the wooden churches, the Monasteries of Maramures are architectural and spirituality centers, for peace of mind and tranquility of the faithful people who visit them.

The Barsana Monastery is located at the southern end of the village and merits a visit by travelers.


Rohia's location atop a hill surrounded by lush forests and stunning views is a truly spiritual place, calm and serene, yet welcoming. The monastery is best known for its late resident and convert to Orthodoxism, Nicolai Steinhardt who spent his final years building a remarkable library of international works.
