Romania Maramures & Bucovina

Jump to last reply

I´m thinking about visiting the Maramures and Bucovina regions at the end of August. I have around 10 days that can be stretched to 14 if I run out of time. My idea is to flight to Cluj Napoca, rent a car, visit Maramures, Bucovina and return by car to Cluj.
This is my schedule:
Day 1: Rent a car in Cluj in the morning and head off to Targu Lapus. In the Lapus Area I would like to stop by/see Rogoz, Targu Lapus, Lapus, Cavnic. At the end of the day sleep in Baia Mare.
Day 2-4: From Baia Mare drive to Sighetu Marmatiei. I want to spend 3 days in Sighetu Marmatiei visiting the wooden churches of Maramures, the happy cemetery, the steam train and small villages in the mountains.
Day 5: from Viseu de Sus drive to Suceava.
Day 6-8: Visit the painted monasteries, Dragomirna monastery and Suceava. Sleeping in Gura Humorului one night and other in Suceava
Day 9-10: Return from Suceava to Cluj.
This is my idea having in mind the poor traffic conditions and comments that I have read in forums.
Do you think that I am very optimistic about the distances by car? Am I covering a big distance is short time?
What can I see returning from Suceava to Cluj in two days? Is it worth the Maramures pass?
Any ideas or suggestions are more than welcome as this is the first time I visit Romania.
