This is something you really shouldn't miss. This open air museum is only 2 km from the city and is huge.

There are houses exposed, original peasant houses from all over the country. They were taken there with trucks together with the furniture and tools of the different folk crafts from weaving to wine making, there is everything.

There are also windmills and watermills, chariots that were used to carry the bride to the wedding and so many great things. There is a lake in the middle with a stage where there are performances of popular music and dance in the summer.

This is the best museum I have seen in the whole country. Senior people are hired to take care of the houses and they do the job very well, although sometimes too well. :) There are many paths you can take to see the houses and yards. The whole thing is like a big village. :)

Sibiu Nightlife

Although it’s a favorite attraction among foreign tourists, Sibiu is a little cheaper than other Romanian cities like Cluj-Napoca, Bucharest or Timisoara. You’ll find some pretty decent restaurants in the most central locations, as well as numerous fast-foods and pizzerias. Most restaurants located in the historic centre are specialized in traditional Romanian and German food, but they [...]
