- Explore the sleepy backwater of Maramures, one of the most isolated regions of Romania, and discover its tall, steep belfried, carved wooden churches
- Have lunch with a local family, stay on a farm, visit a farmers’ market and discover their fastidiously observed folk traditions that keep a strong link with the past
