  • This little countrythat is located in a green area of extraordinary beauty and nesting storks has a small museum that overtime is little defirlo: the largest exhibition of icons on glass, an example of religious and artistic creativity of Romanian peasants. This tradition started in the early 18th century and continued until the end of the 19th now is nearly extinct. The Museum was created by the tenacity of a priest to the 1970 now houses about 600 works from the simplest of the first painters to masterpieces of authors well known in Romania. A real surprise, as the Lady caretaker of the museum works wonders in explaining the different styles and areas of origin of the icons.
