Glod - Maramures

The Church of St. Nicholas in Glod seen from southeast.

A wide roof, faceted from both ends, seems to flow around the whole building. The solid walls seem very dark, as the wide rectangular window frames are painted white, and the west façade is whitewashed. The parapet is decorated with hearts in fretwork, as is the low wall of the porch.
The original interior paintings are no longer visible for the church walls are whitewashed.
