The Wooden Church from Salistea de Sus, Nistoresti, Maramures county, was built in 1680. It is dedicated to Saint Nicholas and is a national historic monument. The Church was built by a rich family from the village, descendant of a certain Nistor. This is why the church is also known as the Church of the Nistor family. It is made of fir tree wood and was set on fire by the Huns in 1717. According to the local legends, a woman saved the church by bringing water from the village with a bucket and extinguishing the fire. The mural painting from the interior is partially preserved and among the most important scenes that can be admired today we mention The Advent and The Moral of The Ten Virgins.
