A little bit of Heaven (166)

National Museum of the Village

“Dimitrie Gusti”

It is an open-air ethnographic museum located in Bucharest near the Arch of Triumph. The Village Museum covers over 100,000 m² and 380 monuments (authentic peasant farms and houses).

It opened its doors to the public in 1936 and is the most visited cultural sight in Romania.

You need a few hours to see it all. Yet, it worth every step you make on its paths enjoying Romania’s culture, old houses and old mechanical and technical solutions brought here from different villages throughout the country.

They give you a glimpse of the past and a “smell” of eternity.

  1. I love this place. I love the smell of old wood, the ethic designs and, of course, the beautiful houses. In my childhood, I used to spend my summer vacations at my grandmother’s house that looked a little bit like these houses.
    This is definitely an important cultural and travel destination when visiting Romania.
    What a wonderful idea to present this museum, Manuela!

    1. I feel the same when it comes to the smell of old wood. It is not a coincidence that I chose to buy that kind of house. 🙂
      Thank you very much for your kindness, Mihaela!
