soulful creations

Bordering the Ukranian border, Maramures houses more wooden gems than a merry cemetery. The Romanian provence is mostly known for their wooden churches (standing room only) dating as far back as the 17th century. It is also the primary reason we traveled so far north.

In a period of time when religion meant everything, people dedicated their lives and resources to create intricate and beautiful buildings to please their God. To me, there is no greater architecture than that of a church. It is a nation's representation of their heart and soul.
