~ROMANIA~


The Village and Folk Art Museum

Now this was one of the most interesting parts of my trip. The houses you will see here were disassembled in various regions of Romania, brought here, and reassembled in the museum. They date back to the ninth century. It's like a time warp. Come with me back in time.




Walking into another time

The Administration building

This wine barrel is about 6 feet high

An old steam engine

The kitchen

More thatched roofs

The White House

Dining area

Sleeping area

The lower level is for storage and animals



Two churches of different periods flanking a Celtic cross. Celtic crosses appear throughout Romania. Their presence cannot be fully explained, but it's obvious that the Celts had an influence on the area at some point in time. The ones I saw had the group of three crosses like on Golgotha.

A living room area

One of the churches there


These are hand painted icons in the church above.

The Dutch weren't the only peoples to utilize windmills


These type buildings had the living quarters dug into the earth.

There is a sharpening wheel on the right and a plow on the left.
