Photographer's Note

Bârsana's historic Church of the Presentation of the Virgin in the Temple is one of eight Wooden Churches of Maramureş listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Barsana is one of the wooden churches in Maramures, a beautiful synthesis of Eastern and Western European architecture, with Gothic and Byzantine elements.
The Monastery is situated on the northern-central part of the village. The first church was built in 1720 with a plan that includes: the gate, the narthex and the nave. The exterior reminds of a hall, but the inside is divided into separated walls according to the traditional Orthodox dogmatic.
