904 RO - Wooden Churches of Maramureş (1999)

Brief Description

"These eight churches are outstanding examples of a range of architectural solutions from different periods and areas. They show the variety of designs and craftsmanship adopted in these narrow, high, timber constructions with their characteristic tall, slim clock towers at the western end of the building, either single- or double-roofed and covered by shingles. As such, they are a particular vernacular expression of the cultural landscape of this mountainous area of northern Romania."

马拉暮莱斯的木结构教堂

"马拉暮莱斯的木结构教堂,展示了不同时期、不同地区的8个教堂建筑物的不同方面。它的设计灵活,具有多变性,工艺绝伦,极具个性。教堂西端有高耸的钟塔,单层和双层的屋顶铺盖着鹅卵石。马拉暮莱斯的木结构教堂是罗马尼亚北部地区重要的文化景观。"
