About the tour

It was HRH Prince Charles of Wales, probably the greatest ambassador of Romania now, who made Romanians realize in the last decades that the real and beautiful Romania has always been and will always stay in the rural villages. The tour will take us to the impressive open-air Village Museum giving us the feeling that we are travelling to rural areas where the time simply stood by, as some of these areas are still inhabited for real and suffered minor changes over the centuries. We shall discover a real "village" in the heart of vibrant Bucharest, with authentic & representative households - but not only, from all over Romania and also learn about centuries-old traditions still very much alive in some regions of country.

Mihai took us today to this lovely "village" in the heart of the vibrant Bucharest, with authentic houses that were moved from the countryside, and from all over Romania to be set-up in the heart of the city. It was a fantastic and informative tour and we learned a lot about his tradition and the way of life in the countryside. I truly enjoyed it. Thank you for your efforts Mihai.

I really enjoyed this tour. It was a real treat to be able to get a glimpse into rural life. The timing of this tour was not conducive to making postcards, because of the shadows. I might suggest a different time for that reason, but Michael conducted an excellent tour.
