Bran Castle, more commonly known as “Dracula’s Castle”
Visit the “Merry Cemetary”, Romania’s Happy Cemetery
To the extreme north of the “Maramures” county likes Sapânta, a village famous of the world’s most unique cemetery. In this cemetary, you will find wooden crosses painted over with striking colors with a painting of the dead’s personal trait and the circumstances of their death. Mostly the work of art of a local village sculpture who died in 1977, this original cemetary is a whole new take on death and worth the visit.
The trip went very well – many thanks!
The churches and
monasteries are truly extraordinary, and Ovidiu is an excellent guide and companion. I am very
glad that you organized a meeting to give the presentation about Bucovina; without it, we would
not have gone to Romania which is definitively a country to discover with the local people so warm and hospitable.
