Average temperature during June in Maramures is 21 degrees during the day but it can be as high as 30 degrees and T shirt weather is the norm and 11 degrees at night so still mild at night . If your interested in visiting Romania in June have a look at our Transylvania Tours that we run all year round. You will see local farmers collecting the first cut of hay of the year if the weather in Romania has been good. You see them out in the fields using a scythe. They look like the grim reaper when they walk home with the sun setting and the silhouette of the scythe hangs over their shoulders.

June is also a busy time for making Holinca. The apples have fermented all winter and are ready for distiling in one of the 19 distileries in the village. You put the apple mulsh in the casan ( the brass pot in the pic below on the left) and it is stired untill boiling. The steam rises and travels in the brass pipe ( the one that goes through the guys head) to a cooling tank. As the steam travels through the pipes in the cooling tank it turns to liquid and drips out into the red bucket at the bottom. This is what the call ‘making Holinca’ and there isn’t a day that goes by in June when you don’t see someeone making Holinca.
