If I would have to pick only one museum to visit in Bucharest, this would be the one. It might have something to do with my romantic nature, but still, I think this place has the wisdom to inspire most of us. With all those peasant houses moved in from all over Romania (oldest one dating from the 17th century),... More

The Village Museum is a beautiful park where old houses, huts, water mills and agricultural tools have been moved from their original places all over Romania to be preserved and admired by city people... The green grass, nearby lake, a beautiful wooden church and sights and sounds of birds make it a wonderfully calming and romantic place
