Set in the verdant King Michael I Park in central Bucharest, Dimitrie Gusti Village is a fascinating departure from the urban sprawl. It is a highly sophisticated ethnographic museum in itself. Also, Dimitrie Gusti depicts the quintessential rural charm of Romania better than anywhere else. The village covers an area of over 100,000 square meters and nestles 272 peasant farms modeled after originals from all around the country. As you wander among them, you will feel as though you have traveled back in time. 

With houses featuring all sorts of traditional architectural elements, Dimitrie Gusti Village is beyond expectations. It is the city’s most authentic stretch, where sincere connections to old Romania abound. It is a surprise to see that the museum is actually alive, literally. The old owners of the cottage houses reside here today. They carry on their lives and exchange stories with the visitors. The importance of the countryside in Romanian traditions constitutes the main scene of the village. With its natural state, the site resembles a national park more than a museum.

Houses and farms in Dimitrie Gusti Village vary in terms of the time and the geography they were built in. The oldest cottage dates back to the 17th century. Mountainside residences are famous for their distinctive high foundation. Sprinkled among these conspicuous sights are peasant artifacts from stables to churches and quaint mills. They make Dimitrie Gusti Village all the more down-to-earth.
