Fusta treballada / Wood carving

Vista de la porta de l'església de Budesti Josani, part del patrimoni mundial de la UNESCO.

 

El poble de Budesti, al fons de la vall del Cosau, té fama de ser el més tradicional de Maramures.

 

Maramures és la regió de Romania més al nord de tot, i fortament aïllada per les muntanyes. Fins fa poc era un reducte de la vida tradicional de pagès com pocs a Europa. Desgraciadament s'està perdent a marxes forçades per la modernització portada pels emigrants que tornen. Així i tot, encara hi queden parts que semblen literalment anclades al segle XIX.

The village of Budesti, deep in the Cosau valley, is one of the most unchanged ones in Maramures, yet modern cars & buildings are transforming it right now.

 

Maramures is a unique place in Europe. It's located in the north of Romania. A place were you could travel to the XIX Century; a very traditional and charming countryside and villages. But sadly this is changing everyday, becoming more modern. This could be good for the people of Maramures in a way, but it's sad to see that maybe they will lose a great deal in the proces, specially their beautiful wooden villages and traditions.
