The Maramureș region of northern Transylvania is renowned for its beautiful hand-carved wooden churches built during the Middle Ages. Now a UNESCO Heritage Site, visitors can take the Maramureș Heritage Trail, which starts in the rural village of Breb, whose own wooden church dates back to 1531. The trail connects seven traditional villages over a course of 86 km and is scattered with around a hundred wooden Orthodox churches, plus fascinating museums and memorial houses.
