Wooden Churches of Maramures

The Maramures[?] wooden churches, in N. Transylvania are a selection of eight examples of different architectural solutions from different periods and areas. They are narrow but high timber constructions with characteristic tall, slim clock towers[?] at the western end of the building. They are a particular vernacular expression of the cultural landscape of this mountainous area of northern Romania.

They have been listed by the UNESCO as World Heritage Sites
