Amenities include a souvenir shop selling folk arts and crafts, a stall with traditional Romanian sweets and cakes, and a restaurant set in an original 19th-century inn.

  • Excellent for everyone. Children have little corners where to run and.play, but they will be equally interested to explore the homes and mills around. Each house has explanations in both Romanian and English, and some of them are open and the guides come with additional descriptions. Keepers are friendly, there are cats everywhere to cuddle, and from time to time one can spot some sheep around.
  • One of the best places to know Romanian culture. We had a feeling that we traveled around the whole country just being in one place. The staff is very friendly: they invite to the houses and are happy to tell their stories.
