Photographer's Note

This is main entrance building to the Birsana monastery “Aceasta este poarta cerului” in traslation : “This is the sky’s gate” and in the background the nun’s dormitory “chiliile”can be seen.

Birsana, a small village on the Iza Valley in Maramures, has a monastery which was first mentioned in 1391. In the place of the old monastery, in 1992 the construction of a wooden church in a traditional Maramures style has begun. Now it's finished and it looks like this.
