  • Located deep within the heart of the Romanian village of Sârbi, within the bounds of the Cosău Valley (Budești Commune, Maramureș County), the Sârbi Susani Church is the chief attraction of its local vicinity. Having a single level of eaves, it is one of the most exquisite surviving representatives of the wooden churches of Maramureș. Built between 1638 and 1639, it is attributed to the same master carpenter who erected the Slătioara church before 1639 and the Budeşti Josani church in 1643.

    What’s most interesting about the church is that it possesses a portal bearing a message that is still undiscerned. The high level of symbolism used to create it is not easy to penetrate but its well-preserved state aids in the effort nonetheless. Specialists have stated that it uses Christian symbolism imbued with subtle mythological elements. This is definitely a must-see for everyone who is in search of the most enigmatic religious structures in the world.
