Unknown Carpathians - Hidden Treasures of Romania
The unknown border regions of Romania are some of Europe’s best kept secrets.
Each region holds a unique characteristic that can’t be found anywhere else. We unveil the region of Banat, that rests on the border of Hungary and Serbia, Crisana on the border of Hungary, and Maramures on the border of Ukraine. These regions take pride in their spectacular landscapes, unique natural phenomena, and important cultural sites. These places have slowly been forgotten by time, but are now being brought back to life and attracting a variety of new people to inhabit them. In this two-part series, we explore these unknown spots on the doorstep of the Carpathian Mountains. No detail goes unnoticed in this journey to discover regions that remain largely unknown.
Whether the breathtaking landscapes are observed by Romania’s oldest mountain railway or the perfectly situated health resort, the beauty of Banat is unparalleled.
Crisana & Maramures
Witness the rich culture of the Maramures that is inspired by the wood from its forests, or the unique traditional costumes of the Crisana region, which have been stolen by top fashion brands like Dior. Both regions are examples of rich cultures drawn from nature.
