The new wooden church at Peri monastery in the outskirts of Săpânța village (yes, the one with the Merry Cemetery) is simply towering. Official signs modestly claim that the 75 m tall wooden church is the tallest wooden building in Europe, but we can't think of any other wooden building worldwide that beats it. Some might argue that the church's stone base disqualifies it, making another Romanian wooden church in Surdești the tallest (72 m). As you probably have figured out, wooden churches are not something new to this region. Wherever you go in northern Romania, you will see beautiful, old wooden churches - though not all are this tall.
