2. Friendly Locals
With barely any exception, the visitors to Maramureş declare themselves in love with its inhabitants. Whether you watch them while they toil the field or when they are busy with household chores, whether you chat with them in the street or join them when they put on their best clothes to honour their Sundays, Christian holidays, or weddings, your soul is won over. The people's simple, honest, and straightforward behaviour, their wise words, the way they invite you in their houses, their passion for dancing and singing, and the pride they take when they talk about their places of birth – all of these make you happy that you have met them, been their guest, and, quite often, become their friend.
