“Entertaining and educative trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Wallachian Open Air Museum consists of three parts.The oldest one is The Wooden Townlet and presents Wallachia life town at the turn of the 20th century. Here are several restaurants to sit down for a traditional meal.
Water Mill Valley houses a collection of technical buildings and is open to guided tours only. Tour was very interesting and we had a written commentary in English.
Our favourite part of the museum was The Wallachian Village - the most extensive part. We visited farmhouses, school, pub, blacksmith's shop, wind mill, shepherd's cottages originated as far as 17th century. Many of the houses are manned by local guides who give the most detailed first hand information.
Please reserve most of the day for this visit.
Great for anybody, all exhibits have English tags.

“Discover the world of great grandfathers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

Can you imagine your life without elektricity? - There is a chance, the old village helps your imagination. You could be a farmer, much better if you would be a craftsman as it is not wise to rely on the weather. Learn the craft of the miller or the blacksmith, it might be useful in the case you are travelling in time.

“Time machine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

The exposition is fine, sometimes the staff is not very talkative. Some temporary exhibitions are described just in Czech language, steady exhibitions are multi-language described.

Prices in reastaurants, souvenir shops are reasonable, ocassional events in areal are sensible and nice

“A Step Back in Time...way back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

I visited the Wallachian Open Air Museum and Village recently. It is located in Roznov in the southern part of this beautiful country. What a wonderful layout and easy access this place is. While wandering through the village one could see several venues that plied with real people, a trade hundreds of years old. The village itself with its wooden church as a center piece was magnificent as are the post office and cottages scattered all around. Unlike phony re-enactment villages I have seen, these are real houses that have been move to this location. Easy walking with graduated inclines makes this a wonderful place for the whole family to visit. Great places to sample traditional and especially authentic Wallachian food reasonably priced and lots of it.
