Our second day of visiting Lithuania started after the electronic music festival we attended. As we were still recovering a bit, it was a short day, with just a few stops. Also the weather was not the ideal one, with clouds and a bit of rain, considering that what we had planned for this day was to stay mostly outdoor.
Here’s a very nice presentation video of the Astra Village Museum in Sibiu, Romania. One of the biggest and more complex museums in Europe. More about the Astra Museum here.
For the last few months, I’ve started spending most of my weekends in Sibiu and discover step by step its beauties. Situated right in the middle of Romania, Sibiu is a city of about 150 000 inhabitants, European Cultural Capital in 2007 and now, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful and well preserved cities in the country.
Last weekend I finally managed to visit The Village Museum in Sibiu. Located in the ‘Dumbrava Sibiului’ National Rezervation, the Village Museum is one of the biggest in Europe, with over 300 buildings and 16 000 traditional objects. Very easy to get to (by bus from Sibiu you get there in about 20 minutes), it’s a great place to spend a day in the middle of the nature and surrounded by Romanian traditions (and all this for only 4 EUR entry fee).
