“A Step Back in Time...way back”
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.

This open air museum shows the way people of the region lived and worked. Many festivities take place here, often you can see traditional costumer, hear folklore music, and taste regional specialties including sourcraut soup kyselica, giant pastries frgály filled with plum jam, pear spread, poppy seed or blueberries, and hot honey wine medovina.

“Must see if you want to know how people lived in past times!”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Very nice museum od Walachian village, with all the things people used to work and live here. There all kinds of kitchen equipment, butter making hand "machine" , sewing machines etc. But its only open in late spring / summer / early fall. And try to check their pages for folklore festivals which are usualy at weekends. There is also a new watchtower on the hill above the village. Its a pretty nice walk , architecture of the watchtower is unbeliveable and sight is awesome!

“Festival time”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

We had a lovely day out visiting with my elderly parents. There were a lot of benches for resting around the site and a lot of choice for refreshments. The exhibits were very interesting and we learned a lot about historic Czech way of life. The guides were excellent. As it was a festival weekend there was a lot happening including music and folk dancing and my parents thoroughly enjoyed themselves. There were a lot of people there and the restaurants were under some pressure.
