Maramures és la regió de Romania més al nord de tot, i fortament aillada 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 hi tot, encara hi queden parts que semblen literalment anclades al segle XIX.

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.
