The Village Museum, Bucharest, Romania

united_kingdomThe Village Museum in Bucharest, Romania, is an open air museum about the traditional Romanian village life from the past and present. There are houses, churches, furniture and tools from their original locations. It was opened for the public in 1936 and is now one of the most touristic attractions in Romania; the queen of Belgium, Turkmenistan’s President or the Bush’s wife are some of the important visitors of the Village Museum.

It’s situated on the shore of Herastrau Lake and the atmosphere feels more like a park rather than a museum.


romania_flagMuzeul Satului “Dimitrie Gusti” din Bucuresti e un muzeu in aer liber ce prezinta viata si aspectul satelor din Romania, avand expuse case, biserici, unelte si mobila reprezentante pentru locatia din care provin. Muzeul Satului a fost deschis publicului in 1936 si este un important obiectiv turistic in Romania, fiind vizitat de regina Belgiei, sotia lui Bush sau presedintele Turkmenistanului. Situat pe malul Lacului Herastrau, atmosfera in curtea muzeului e placuta ca intr-un parc linistit, nefiind nicidecum plictisitor sau steril ca alte muzee.

(Se ajunge usor : iei metroul pana la statia Aviatorilor si apoi mers pe jos pana la Arcul de Triumf si imediat la dreapta)
