Not sure about you, but whenever we come near a cemetery, the whole atmosphere is solemn and serious, and certainly nothing to laugh about.

Well, once you reach the Sapanta village in Maramures, you will break this rule, because everyone laughs here, even in the cemetery.

As soon as you enter the Merry Cemetery, you will see groups of people gathered around the tombstones and laughing their heads off . 

This one-of-a-kind open-air museum has earned Romania yet another spot in the Guinness Book of Records.

This is the only cemetery in the world where you will find yourself chuckling as you are admiring the 800 vividly colored oak crosses, with naïve paintings and hilarious poems depicting episodes from the life of the deceased. 

You will have a better understanding of the local religious culture that views death as a celebration, a mere stepping stone to the afterlife. 

In fact, our great national poet Mihai Eminescu once wrote “for there is no death/ and that which you call death/ is just life written elsewise/ in the holy book of nature”.

We include Merry Cemetery in the program in multiple forms of booking tours to museums, monasteries or medieval villages, but this must only tell us when and how you have scheduled vacation just to you can suggest and overlap with various events that occur frequently, such as concerts, festivals, plays, fairs and exhibitions itinerant, seasonal discounts, etc..
