The place is very big, you can easily spend half a day here.
Lots of paths to walk on, lots of houses to see, a terrace where you can sit and have a snack and coffee.

We took a taxi to this wonderful outdoor museum set in a wonderful forest. An impressive reception greeted us on arrival and also at the conclusion of our four hour visit.
The museum is wonderful. It was so peaceful as we walked and explored the...More
great open air museum showing different types of houses from the areas history. the museum is open daily but on Monday and Tuesday none of the attractions operate so you can only walk the paths and enjoy the fresh air.
Breathe deep the fall air and experience first view the changes of the hardwood forests as winter approaches. Put on your walking shoes and amble down the lake path, crossing over the spillway dam for a quick perusal of open-air space as you gaze North...More
Allow yourself at least 4 to 5 hours for a visit. We spent that long looking around the vast collection of buildings despite the interiors being closed for the winter, which was slightly disappointing. Also the authentic Romanian restaurant in the grounds is worth a...More
You can see with your eyes how our ancestors survived.
The mills which built the city still exist.
With the mills you can drain the water from the soil.
I also found the stones of the city inn other places like Hoherinne and Erasmus.
We came on a cold day when the place was virtually deserted. We bought the guide book, which did not add a great deal to the experience.
ASTRA is set on a huge rural site just outside Sibiu, and contains a vast number of old...More

That sounds nice think about flying back from Cluj. Ukraine from Sighet is not that exciting unless you want to party all night then it has some serious potential. To see the Carpathian part of Ukraine you need a few days but its very beautiful.T he train is worth doing but you can comute from Breb even if its a bit of an early start. Rob

nature and hiking around sibiu (4 Replies)
Hi, I'll be visiting romania next month and planning a visit to sibiu. The main idea is focusing on the old town, but I wanted to know if you have a suggestion to a few hours outside the city in the nature if I don't feel like seeing museums and so on? I read about the ASTRA Museum of Traditional Folk Civilization in Dumbrava forest and wanted to know if there's something more "adventurous" (a few hours of hiking in the woods or something like that) to do. I would be happy to read...More

You could try heading towards Paltinis (a resort up in the mountains about 30 km/one hour away from Sibiu, there are several buses to it) - either get off the bus as soon as you enter the mountains (after the village Rasinari) and hike along the road or go all the way to Paltinis and start from there.

Cluj: Sunday late to Wed. 20:00: Day Trips - back by evening (1 Replies)
We are visiting my son, who is in Cluj. He has classes Monday and Tuesday until late afternoon, and Wednesday until 16:00. We would like to do a couple day trips on Monday and Tuesday - as long as we are back to have dinner with him. We do not mind renting a car if that is necessary... is this suggested for a day or two? I noticed "alterme" posted the information below, but are there other suggestions if we were to rent a car? Or, is it best not to? Per "Alterme": You can go to Turda (for...More
