National Village Museum – Bucharest

The Dimitrie Gusti National Village Museum is an outdoor ethnographic museum located in King Michael I Park on the shores of Lake Herăstrău in Bucharest, which showcases traditional life in Romanian villages.

Muzuel National al Satului is the largest open-air museum in Europe and focuses on rural constructions typical of Romania.

Its peculiarity and popularity are due to the presence of about 300 different types of wooden houses and churches that were brought here in 1936 from all over the country to illustrate the history and traditions of peasant villages.

These are therefore original buildings, taken in their natural environment and inserted in a space that wants to recreate some moments of life of the Romanian countryside.
