These celebrate the customs and traditions of winter, with folk costumes and masks, and beautiful traditions preserved throughout this region.

Sighetu Marmatiei is most renowned for The Memorial of the Communism Victims made up of a museum situated in the former political prison of Sighet and The International Centre for Studies about Communism. The prison was built in 1897 and could detain 120 prisoners. It functioned as a prison until 1977. The Memorial aims to rebuild the memory of certain nations, particularly the Romanians, who for half of a century have been misled with a false history.

Our Transylvania package deals also include the Merry Cemetery, a unique place in the world. Talented woodcraftsmen carved wooden crosses for each grave. On each cross, they added a special epitaph describing the dead person’s life. The epitaphs on the gravestones have a comic tone. Sapanta is also famous for its wood church being one of the highest wood constructions in Europe with its 54 m tall spire.
