Barsana and Botiza, Romania

Bârsana is a small community in Maramureş county with beautiful wooden monastery built after the Romanian Revolution of 1989

I like that mass is performing outdoors with beautiful singing of monastery nuns

Homestead in Poienile Izei

Poienile Izei is small village at the end of paved road to Botiza

Youth mix traditional style with modern

Botiza, small and far away village with gravel roads access

Easter mass

Botiza commune is well-known for the hand-made wool carpets and scarfs

After long day and bumpy roads … cold Ursus beer

    Vos photos sont magnifiques ! Elles donnent envie de voir votre pays et les gens.
    En ce moment je lis "Maramures, terra incognita" de Gil Jouanard (2002) et j'écoute la fabuleuse voix de Angela Buciu : un régal pour les oreilles et l'esprit. Merci et bonne continuation.
