The Merry Cemetery of Sapanta – Maramures county, Romania.

The Merry Cemetery of Sapanța – Maramures is the best place to go if you want to see the quality of the Romanian creative expression through wood art. The Cemetery of Sapanta is like a book about the life and death of the villagers written on wood and preserved as an inheritance.
The paintings on the wooden crosses depicted an important scene from the life of the departed. Sometimes, these scenes illustrated the person’s occupation: forester, hunter, carpenter, cook or farmer.
