See what peasant life was like hundreds of years ago at Muzeul National al Satului "Dimitrie Gusti". The open-air site, founded on the shores of a lake in 1936, exhibits nearly 300 structures of rural architecture brought from Romania's historical regions. Walk among steep-roofed peasant homes, farmsteads, log cabins, thatched barns, windmills, and water mills. Take time to visit the steep belfry of the wooden church, the earth houses, and the carved entrances of the 18th-century houses from Berbeşti. Amenities include a souvenir shop selling folk arts and crafts, a stall with traditional Romanian sweets and cakes, and a restaurant set in an original 19th-century inn. Call in advance for guided tours, which are available in English, French, Spanish, Italian, and Russian.

You can also guess the construction and sometimes also the ways of life of different Romanian regions. Unfortunately, I lacked the possibility of interaction, such as a loom, a spinning wheel or trying out carving or embroidery. Where you can't complain at all is the price. 4 LEI for students (approx. 0.80€) and 15 for adults (approx. 3.10€). In general, there is much to visit, but much is repeated for the eye of a layman.

Excellent for everyone. Children have little corners where to run and.play, but they will be equally interested to explore the homes and mills around. Each house has explanations in both Romanian and English, and some of them are open and the guides come with additional descriptions. Keepers are friendly, there are cats everywhere to cuddle, and from time to time one can spot some sheep around.
One of the best places to know Romanian culture. We had a feeling that we traveled around the whole country just being in one place. The staff is very friendly: they invite to the houses and are happy to tell their stories.
