Barsana is one of the wooden churches in Maramures with Gothic and Byzantine elements. The legend says that the monastery originally stood across the river Iza, in the Slatina Valley, and that it was moved later to the right of the river. Its beauty and uniqueness made it one of the eight churches in the region that UNESCO designated WORLD HERITAGE site.
