These villages might seem as though they belong to fairy tales but they are real-life areas.
Romania’s remote coastal area of Maramureș includes a distinctive architectural design, in which tall, tower-like wooden churches with shingled roofs dot the landscape.
Incredibly, a number of them are 400 years old.
A few of those churches, built with local pine, are on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Is Romania on your bucket listing yet?
