Very interesting open air museum where one can learn and see how people used to live in Romania back in the day in different regions. Plan to go when the weather is nice if not it may spoil the experience. The surroundings are nice and enjoyable. You can buys snacks around the village museum.

We were guests of an official tour and were shown the historical village. It showed the design, construction and style of Romainian village houses over a 400 year period, the houses are full scale buildings.

All of the houses started to look alike after a while, but they were interesting. They reminded me of pictures of homes in a Book of Grimm's Fairytales. The grounds are lovely with nice views of the lake. very peaceful atmosphere.

Recreations of different areas of the country are represented via cottages, tools, equipment, gardens, and so forth. The resident cats will keep you company, and there is even a little restaurant where you can stop for refreshments. Located beside a lake, it is a beautiful place for a stroll.

It's mostly outdoors and without cover so put on your sunscreen when you venture out. You can take photos of the original villager structures procured from many villages. But you can NOT take photos inside the buildings (bummer). Will need to venture here again for more photos and to take more time when the weather is cooler.
