Welcome to Săpânţa
Săpânţa, 18km northwest of Sighetu Marmaţiei, exudes pastoral charm with vividly hued rugs hanging over walls, fields dotted with hayricks, and horses and carts trundling at a snail's pace. The main draw of the village, however, is its unique Merry Cemetery: the church graveyard famous for the colourfully painted wooden crosses that adorn its tombstones. The crosses attract busloads of visitors who marvel at the gentle humour that created them and, curiously, villagers seem unfazed by the daily circus. Outside the church, a gauntlet of souvenir stalls hawk embroidered tablecloths, carved gewgaws and woven rugs.
