Muzeul Satului din BAIA MARE - The Village Museum (Maramures, Romania)
Video: Lucian Ionescu
The open air Museum welcomes its guests with traditional architecture representing the four ethnographic regions of Maramureș County: Chioar, Historical Maramureș, Lăpuș and Codru.
As soon as the visitor enters the monumental wodden gate, specific to Maramureș, he is transported to an archaic universe that smells of freshly cut grass and old wood. Each house tells a story about ancient times and people who lived with simplicity and faith.
The traditional house is the core of the household, which also includes other various buildings. All this is presented in the museum, together with the technical installations that recreate the image of the authentic Maramureș village.
The interior of the house is a functional assembly that reflects the profession, social status and stylistic conception of the people. The stove, the furniture, the decorative pieces show how they lived in those times.
The visitor is warmly welcomed in the "village of villages" on the flower hill (the street name, Dealul Florilor) to relax, together with the family, in a peaceful and picturesque environment.
