At Mosei, turn left toward Bistrita, then right after a few miles toward Sacel and Sighetu Marmatiei, the principal town.(Sighetu also can be reached by continuing straight at Mosei, but the lower road passes through the region' s most traditional villages.) From Sacel on, each village offers its share, and more, of wooden houses, many with sculpted designs on balconies and around entrances.If time is limited, the interiors at Ieud, Bogdan Voda and Poenile Izei are recommended.

ANTREC Strada Stirbei Voda 2-4 Bucharest, Romania Telephone: (011) 40-1-315-2732 Fax: (011) 40-1-312-0148 E-mail: [email protected] the province of Moldavia, head westward along a good, but mountainous, road to Romania's most traditional region, Maramures.
The drive takes about five hours with no stops, but this is virtually an impossibility, especially for photographers.
Picturesque villages (notably Ciocanesti, whose houses covered with painted flowers and geometrics make it arguably Romania' s prettiest village), spectacular mountain scenery and a unique museum smack in the middle of nowhere The Museum of the Tree Roots with a bizarre exhibit of figures sculpted from tree roots all beg inspection.
Gawking becomes even more demanding once Maramures is reached.
The countryside is the heart and soul of Romania, where peasant culture remains a strong force and medieval life prevails, as it does nowhere else in Europe.
