    Romanian museum celebrates the creativity of kitsch

    Visitors to Romania who yearn for a taste of communist era kitsch now have an entire museum to enjoy.

    From the mundane - wedding champagne flutes covered in sequins and bows - to the more spectacular - a life-sized Dracula and flashing neon crucifixes - Bucharest's Kitsch Museum celebrates questionable taste of the past and present.

    "The creativity behind kitsch must be admired."

    The 215 exhibits are curated into several categories: communist, Dracula, Orthodox Church, contemporary and Gypsy kitsch.

    It was an incredible experience going through our national kitsch culture. Everything from Dracula, religion, communism, gipsies and modern kitsch has been entartaining and sad at the same time.

    The kitsch museum is a very funny place. It explains some of the weird phenomena one may experience while visiting Romania. People with Slavic origins can relate to many of the exhibits, with occasional "whaaat?" Loved this museum, laughed to tears!
