  • Lovely place with all the village houses, farms and traditions gathered from different places and regions of Romania. It is really one of the biggest open air museums of that type.
  • Really great place to visit and relax. You will see a lot of old houses and experience a travel back in time. And the ticket is only 17 lei!
  • A great place where you can see old traditional houses that are very beautiful. Perfect for an insight on how life was going in the rural parts of Romania until almost a century ago.
  • Great place where you can see the houses of former Romania all its edges. The park is almost 1,000 acres and takes several hours until the roundabout.
  • Great outdoor museum, with many old houses and a lot of history.
