The wooden church of Budești Josani is one of the largest wooden churches in Maramureș. In 1999 it was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Built in 1643 by Greek-Catholic believers, this church became Orthodox, after the Greek-Catholic religion was banned by the Communists. It is a typical Maramurean church, with a high roof and a slender tower.

The roof shingles, the tower rises above pronave has arbor and a helmet 38 m. The helmet is placed four small towers, which shows the importance of the former village. The entrance door frame is beautifully decorated with arabesques, rosettes and geometric shapes.

The interior consists of a pronaos, nave and altar, all covered with painting, a large number of wooden icons and a collection of glass icons. Only the ship's vault is missing the painted canvas, it was pulled and disappeared. The flat roof around it had a special role in protecting the paintings made in 1643 against the humidity. The painting of the narthex, the nave and most of the icons were made by Alexander Ponehalschi, and the painting of the altar in 1812 by Ianos Opris. The iconostasis has four registers.

Jesus Crucified seen above, the register two St. Mary with Child surrounded by prophets, Jesus and the three register among the twelve. The icons and royal doors are at the bottom. Doors have no cutouts and are decorated with painting.

This is the place of Pintea the Brave, the legendary outlaw of the area, which he left in 1717 after the fight against the Tartars in the care of the church. After 1989 it seemed that the building claim will be successful, but Greek Catholic Church lost the case at the Supreme Court.
