Maramures and Bucovina

Maramures is an alive museum and it offers a real journey back in time. All traditions and ancient crafts are unique. It’s a real joy to mix with the locals and watch their daily activities, and this is what I will help you with!!
Bucovina, on the other hand, is an idyllic place with awesome landscapes, spread-out village and very famous for the painted churches (UNESCO) and egg painting.

These are two of the most original region in Europe, in culture and traditions. I will be there for you to understand them, to enhance your cultural experience, we’ll join the locals in their daily activities and I will share with you all the hidden and unique gems.
