Sarah Pedlow – U.S.A

Subject: Maramures County
Location: Maramures County, Northwest Romania, Transylvania, Romania, Europe
Title: Gorgeous countryside and warm, friendly people

“I spent several days in Maramures in June of 2012. My trip was especially great, due to my stop on a whim at the tourist office in Baia Mare. Rada Pavel, with perfect English and a great sense of humor, connected me with a guide, Alexandra Nicolici, who took me to see the wooden churches and up to the Merry Cemetery. Alexandra made a special effort to tailor the afternoon to my interests, even taking me to the home of a woman involved in preserving traditional textiles. They also connected me with the Babou Maramures hostel, a renovated barn on a family home in a small town, with the former owner still living on the property, gardening and raising chickens. I was blown away by the beauty of the landscape and the culture. Maramures was the unexpected highlight of my trip to Western Romania.”
