On my visit to Bucharest this spring, I went to see the Dimitrie Gusti National Village Museum. This is an open-air museum, its charm changing along with the seasons. You step through a door and you are in a village right in the middle of the capital city. It’s like villages from all over the country combined in one. Not only are there houses from different regions, but also windmills and watermills, fountains and churches (the wooden church from Maramureș is my favourite!). Most of the houses have the interior furnished and decorated as well, and small flower gardens in the courtyard in front.
It was a pleasant visit, this beautiful place is very peaceful. I was lucky enough to even encounter a beautiful lady wearing the Romanian traditional costume, who agreed to pose for me. And I loved the cats that form the anti-mice brigade, happily sunbathing on the alleys.
Here are some photos to show you a bit of Romanian village beauty:
