Iza Valley & Resurrection Service

Reunion with your guide in the morning. Go on a beautiful hike through the villages on the Izei Valley, after a 1-hour transfer by car. The starting point will be the wooden church from Ieud - UNESCO monument, the oldest wooden church from Maramureș, which you will also visit. From there, they started at a slow pace towards the neighboring village, Botiza. We will also visit a lady from the village who continues the tradition of weaving for a short demonstration and a coffee break.
It is a perfect opportunity to observe people dressed in folk costumes preparing for the Lord's Resurrection.

In the evening you return to the accommodation, and then you can participate in the Resurrection service either in the village or at the Bârsana monastery, to witness the custom of blessing the traditional dishes that will constitute the Easter meal.

The Memorial of the Victims of Communism awaits you on the pedestrian street of the city, the place where a part of the elite of Romanian politics and culture of the last century was exterminated in a tragic way. You can continue the journey with a visit to the Museum of Jewish Culture - Elie Wiesel Memorial House and a visit to the Merry Cemetery in Săpânța. You can also start the day with a mini-trip to Vişeul de Sus, for a ride with the Mocănița steam train and to visit the town of Sighet on the way back.
