Private tour to Dimitrie Gusti National Village Museum

Here, on the southern bank of Herastrau lake, you will see an embodiment of Romanian traditions and you will learn what it meant for Romanian villagers to have built an ecological and sustainable environment in their backyard. You will also get a glimpse of their simple and modest lifestyle, in social and spiritual harmony with their surroundings. 

You will enter the universe of the traditional Romanian houses, large or small, made of wood and adobe, but also stone and other materials, boyar houses, eco-houses with thatched roofs, spanning all areas of the country. You will also see national symbols such as the mill or the wooden church and you will learn how these treasures of spirituality and civilization have kept us together for thousands of years in the face of foreign invaders.

Worthy of the Guinness Book of Records

 

There is virtually no trip to Romania or tour of Bucharest that does not include it, the National Village Museum being one of the most visited tourist attractions in the capital. 

Located in a beautiful park, on the bank of Herastrau Lake, it is a place where you can enjoy fresh air in the heart of nature, a place where time has stood still, encasing the charm and fascination of days long gone. 

The rich smell of old wood and straw evokes a time when actual Romanian villagers used to live here. You will get a better sense of how much civilization has evolved just by comparing the old wooden seesaw found here with the modern machinery you see at Disneyland…

The oldest house, built in the 16th century, seems to have come out of a hobbit movie, half buried in the ground and almost completely covered in greenery. 

It is definitely a great spot to take a selfie and show it to your friends.

In addition, you might have the chance to encounter a celebrity or two. Over the years, the museum has been visited by ambassadors, presidents and other international figures, the likes of Indira Ghandi, Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton, United States presidents, kings, queens, cultural figures, movie stars, etc.

At the end of your visit, whether you chose the one-day tour or the two-day tour, the National Village Museum in Bucharest is the perfect place to buy souvenirs from Romania and wonderful gifts for all your friends and loved ones. 

A piece of friendly advice: The Village Museum is not just one of the oldest open-air museum in Europe, along with the ones in Sweden and Norway, it is also quite extensive – approximately 23 acres, so make sure you wear comfortable shoes!

We include The National Village Museum in the program in multiple forms of booking tours to museums, monasteries or medieval villages, but this must only tell us when and how you have scheduled vacation just to you can suggest and overlap with various events that occur frequently, such as concerts, festivals, plays, fairs and exhibitions itinerant, seasonal discounts, etc...
