We have visited one of the most beautiful churches in the historical region of Maramureș. The unique church of Saint Parascheva was built in 1632, it is a classic example of local architecture with its double roof, a tower with three bells (1673), and two-level windows. The church´s heritage is very rich and it includes collections of old books (1699) and wooden painted icons. What makes it really special are its paintings which are well preserved and depict various Biblical scenes. The paintings dating back to the year 1794 are in a good state of preservation and that is why the church is listed in UNESCO and considered to be one of the most well-preserved churches in the Maramureș region.
