REVIEWS:

The Muntean family was very helpful in all aspects and I really enjoyed staying, even adding on an extra night to enjoy the area. The rooms were quiet, very clean, sunny and comfortable. Location was great, too. In addition, we were able to purchase a guided car tour courtesy of the proprietor and saw so very much of the countryside as well as visited local artisans for a reasonable price per day. Very nice and I'll go back!

We enjoyed thoroughly our 2 nights stay at Casa Muntean. Florin, our host also tour guide did a wonderful job with our every needs including fetching us from Campulung at short notice driving through bumpy mountainous roads for 6 hours! Our hostess, Ioana, made us delicious hot meals. We are glad to have made our decision to stay in Casa Muntean while exploring those interesting places in Maramures. Thanks to Florin and Ioana for making our stay an enjoyable and memorable one.

Looking at my time in Romania I would say that Sighet and Casa Muntean was where I enjoyed myself the most. The facilities were new and clean and very comfortable with traditional wooden decor and a traditional wooden gate. Florin met me at the train station and drove me to the pension which took about 5 minutes. His family was also wonderful and welcoming- his wife making the best traditional meals at a low cost. It was like no other guesthouse I have stayed in before. It was relaxing and had an air of home to it. Also, Florin offered us tours of the nearby sites, allowing us to witness a slice of the Maramures lifestyle. If you are looking for a warm welcome upon your arrival in Maramures I recommend staying at Casa Muntean.

MARAMURES:

    Maramures is the region where ancient traditions, the folk costumes and old art are preserved like nowhere else in Romania. Maramures virtually is a vast museum in open air. Here, people still use home appliances and implements that otherwise can be seen only in museums. That is why the village is the primordial element of tourism in Maramures. The tourists attending one of the folk celebrations such as Tanjaua of Hoteni (around 10th of May), Hora of Prislop (around 15th of August), Sambra Oilor or a day of a patron of one of the most important churches will be impressed by the spirit, light and colour discharged by the folk customs, art and costumes.  
    
The wooden churches are true folk art masterpieces. One comes across them in almost all Maramures villages, the oldest wooden church – 1364 – is to be found in Ieud (restored several times).
  
   
The carved gates need no special introduction as they have for a long time now been the symbol of Maramures. They can be admired in the villages along the valleys of Iza, Mara or Cosau. The same stand valid for the folk costumes. One point should nonetheless be made, namely that many locals wear them every day, not only on Sundays as in other parts of the country.
   
    
Among the gems of Maramures “The Merry Cemetery” holds a special place. It is unique in the world and is located in the village Sapanta which also excells in other specific handicrafts: wool bed spreads, towels, small purses and other.
   
    
Unique is also the Vaser Valley opening from Viseu de Sus. Along approximately 50 km, a narrow-track train driven by a steam locomotive take tourists to a wild valley with waterfalls and tunnels.
   
Sighetu Marmatiei is an important tourist and cultural centre. Worth mentioning is the Ethnography and Folk Art Museum, with an outdoor section: The Village Museum. An already famous Festival of Winter Folk Customs and Traditions is hosted by Sighet every year at 27th of December. Also here one may visit the former prison now called “Memorial to Arrested Thought” and arranged as museum.
