The first place I visited is Săpânţa, located in the Cimitirul Vesel, that is “Merry Cemetery”, unique in all the word, where the tombs are painted with scenes depicting moments in the life of the deceased and are inscribed with a humorous poem about him.
But the area is also famous for its wooden churches, belonging to the Romanian Orthodox Church, the first of which dates to the sixteenth century. Many of them are UNESCO World Heritages: narrow and tall towers, there is not a trace of other materials that wood, not even a nail, the craftsmanship of the carpenters is quite amazing.
Edit: in Barsana there`s a marvellous monastery, this photo can give you an idea about it.
Where I stayed? In a private house, where food for dinner, based on bean soup, sausage, cheese and bread and breakfast, based on pancakes, plum jam and milk, was all homemade.
