Costume can still be seen on Sundays and in the village dance groups of Maramures county. Along the Iza valley at Bogdan Voda, Dragomireşti  and Bârsana the villagers sit outside their houses in the late afternoon. Valea Stejarului is along several miles of unmade road not far from the main town of Sighet. Certeze in Oas still holds the village Sunday dance late in the afternoon, but the numbers have greatly reduced since the early 1990's.
