Muzeul Satului (Village Museum)
A few dozen peasant homes, barns, churches and mills, representing vernacular rural architecture, were transported from all over Romania, to a park on the west side of Herastrau Lake in north Bucharest. Built to show the pride of Romanian peasants in their work and homes, the open-air museum is recovering from past fires, with newly relocated homes and pieces - many from the 19th century - replacing fire-damaged ones. Among them are rustic wooden churches and tall-roofed Transylvanian houses with beautifully crafted shingles containing everyday accessories such as tools, butter-churns, hay forks, beer kegs and clothes.
