The Orthodox Barsana monastery is most unusual, since all its constructions are wooden. Dedicated to St Nicolas, the monastery is a meeting place for Orthodox practitioners, it is also a place for events, in form of Masses for example. This is a case me and Peter met, as seen in the pictures.

 

 

In the cloister, the monastery courtyard, a religious man chanting prayers or stories …

 

 

Therefore a very particular style, a haven of peace close to nature. Wood is directly formatted in one of the buildings that comprise the monastery, you will be impressed by the talent of the craftsmen who carve beautiful drawings inspired from their religion.

 

 

Located 20 km from Sighetu Marmatiei in Maramures.
