    Maramures is one the best kept Europe's secrets, the place where the time hasn't moved for decades, a place where the traditions, the wooden art and the human kindness are well preserved. Maramures covers 3381 sq km of valleys, beautiful villages, hills and mountains (up to 2303 m high).

    The wooden churches protected by UNESCO (Poienile Izei, Ieud-Deal, Budesti-Josani, Desesti and Barsana-Jbar), erected between XVI-XVIII centuries, in "Maramures gothic style" and painted hundreds of years ago.

    The tallest wooden church in the world (78 m high, erected at Sapanta, between 1995-2003).

    One of the best advantages of Baia Mare is that it is located in a depression in the Carpathian Mountains. This means that, at any time, you are at 30 minutes distance from some amazing views.

    If you have a car you can easily go up the Gutai mountains, located at about 30 km from Baia Mare to enjoy the view offered by the mountain.

    There are some spots used for rock climbing and for paragliding.

    You can find a high resolution map of the mountains at this address: http://www.carpati.org/download/h31/.

    If you decied to go hiking, please do not forget to inform somebody on your route, so that in case something happens, they know ehre to search for you. In some areas it's dangerous to get off the marked trail, so please do not do so. You should also beware of avalanche warnings during the winter and spring, so please ask around about any dangers.

    Should you have any problems up on the mountain and you have a mobile phone and network coverage, dial 112.

    Have fun and keep safe
