Could have been Better
I wish they would give out English Audio for tourists just to explain the houses or items and their use. Room for improvement there.You even get lost with your path and it is not clear where you are going.The place needs maintenance although it has a lot

Good to be visited
It's not a big place and doesn't have many things to show. If you visit Sighetu Marmatiei, you can visit this plase also. You don't need more than 10 minutes for this.
5. Piscina Sarasau
2 based on 2 reviews
Piscina Sarasau is a complex of 2 indoor heated swimming pools opened in 2016. One of the swimming pools has salty water which is beneficial for human health. In summer of 2016 we aim to open a 3rd swimming pool outdoor. The facilities are open all year round and everyone is welcomed daily between 10:00-22:00.

Deep knowledge about the region
We have booked a one-day tour with Private Maramures Tours. It was the highlight of our trip. Teofil, the guide, is very knowledgeable about local traditions, people and places. During our tour with him we have seen medieval wooden churches, astonishing new monasteries, water mills, traditional farmers and some very special artisans.
