The Village Museum Bucharest
A panorama of Romania’s erstwhile villages, consisting of old traditional houses gathered from all the regions of the country, the Village Museum Bucharest is one of the unmissable attractions. In the heart of the city, and yet away from urban noise and futuristic buildings, on the shores of the Herastrau Lake, the “Dimitrie Gusti” Village Museum manages to recreate the atmosphere of traditional Romanian villages, reconstructed here complete with churches, a windmill, and a water mill, and animated by folk arts and crafts demonstrations.
All the exhibits are authentic, genuine samples of architecture specific to various rural areas of the country, arranged according to relief and historical era. The oldest house here dates from the 17th century, while the newest was originally built in the 19th century.
