Chef Nicolai Tand, the famous chef of the Antena 1 station, invested his money in a superb guesthouse, with 7 rooms, in Rozavlea, Maramureș, where he also gave a helping hand, with the hard work:
“I used to have a concrete fence, made by my father, but I changed it to one of woven sticks, although everyone asked me why I do this. This is, in fact, Maramures.
I try to preserve the places, as we received them from our elders, for the tourists to come for the wood, for the fabrics, for the traditions. The boarding house floors are laid by me, I’m just a carpenter’s son! It is actually a holiday home, a beautiful location, where others come to hang out, with a beautiful yard, they can come with dogs and small children. It is not at all expensive here. The wife takes care of Casa Tand in Maramureș”, Nicolai Tand told us in a recent interview for Playtech News.
