Viseu Lanes

Viseu de Sus, judetul Maramures

Description

The main traffic axis of Maramures are Viseu Lanes. They are bordered to the east by small mountains, which form the border of the great heights of Maramures Mountains. A goal of real value that offers essential components of the human ambiance, is represented by Vaser Valley, which springs from Ignatescu mountain. On Vaser Valley, the tourism existed since the early twentieth century.

Mocanita is particularly important for the Vaser Valley, the steam train station leads to Cozia. The length of the railway is 56 kilometers, and the locomotives model "Resita" are made in the 1950. The train is used for industrial purposes, for timber exploitation, but the presence of the tourists is welcomed. The area’s landscape is truly exceptional, along the line you will discover the most beautiful forms of nature: the steep banks that start near the line, cold and enigmatic ancient forests, massive rocks crossed by tunnels, as you've never met in other places. Leading to heavy wagons in the heart of the forest, slipping and throwing sparks, the "old mocanita" requires stops for water and very improvised tender- cart with logs for the fire - must be completed.

Although at the first sight, the journey will seem quite long, the beauty of the area captured by cameras objectives, will make you lose track of real time. At the Vaser Valley at Faina rises a chapel from 1909 and now there are finished 2 chalets at the Suligu resort.

The practice of hunting in this area is allowed according to the hunting season: September 1 and December 15 for deer season, for wild boars between August 1 and February 15, the Bears need special permission and for blackcock April 1 to May 15, for other animals.

Between the touristic sites of the Vinului Valley area, we mention: the mineral waters (Borcea, the local name), the wooden churches and Gothic architecture of churches built after 1835, the churches and monasteries such as the Greek Catholic, today orthodox, in 1832, the Roman Catholic church built between 1912 - 1918 dedicated to "Joachim and Anna", the Roman Catholic church, the monastery on Scradei Valley.
