From Sighet there are a numbwer of options in terms of things to do, some in the town its self the others out in the surrounding country side. You will want to visit th local political prison museum in Sighet and maybe the house of Ellie Wiesel. In the surounding countryside there are many picturesque villages which abound with local culture, you will want to visit the famous wooden churches, a Tuica still, traditional washing machine and of course just wander around a local village.
To the north of the town is the merry cemtary,here poples lives and deaths are recorded colourfuly on their head stones.
Beyond this there are many local dance and music festivals mostly on Sundays, these are very colourful and reflect the local diversity of culture.

Address: Sighetu Marmatiei
Directions: Maramures lies some 500 klms north of Bucharest and takes a 13 hour train ride through some spectacular countryside,alternatively you might take a eight hour bus ride from Budapest. This isnt an easy place to visit but is worth it when you get here.
