  • It's not a big village museum, but it's well taken care of and really informative and interesting; very good if you want to do an activity with kids. It is quite shadowy, so very suitable for a hot summer day; also, there is a small terrace where you can grab a snack and it's conveniently placed next to a playground. Very nice experience
  • These place take e you back to the origins of romanian villages.
