[vc_column_textThe Botiza village lies at a distance of almost 70 km from Săpânța.
It was mentioned in documents in 1353 by the name of Batizhaza, meaning Batiz’s house, probably from the founder of the village. Over the time, the name of the village changed a few times, from Batiz in 1411, Batizhaz in 1418, Batizfalva in 1487 to the current name of Botiza used after the Great Union in 1918.
Botiza is an old Romanian village, situated at the foothills of Țibleș Mountains, and it still preserves the old customs and traditions, being known for its traditional wool rugs that are dyed using vegetal dyes only. Botiza is part of the ethnographic historical Maramureș, hearth of culture and civilization deeply related to the life of the forest and the work of wood, area which was remarked for the variety of natural landscapes, wealth and traditional folk culture; it is also the place where traditions, clothing and folk art are preserved like nowhere else in the country. Botiza village does not have direct access to the rail transport, the nearest railway station being Iza Railway station in Săliștea de Sus, at about 26 km away from the village. Because of this, the access of the Botiza residents to the railway is more restrictive than the access to road transportation.
