Ever imagined yourself walking through a medieval village that’s located right in the middle of a city? All our tours are about “Time Travelling”, but this one really nails it. Discover Bucharest’s Village Museum – a time capsule in the heart of an urban jungle. Once enchanted by the folklore and by the eerie looks of the village, you will end the tour in style: taste traditional Romanian wines, cheese & dry sausages at a local wine bar.
1st stop: The Village Museum – an open-air reconstruction of the traditional Romanian village
“The architecture of a country is, perhaps, the most accurate expression of its history” (M. Cantacuzino). For many Romanians, entering the National Village Museum is like going back to the childhood days spent in the countryside. For everyone else, this is the perfect place to discover the authentic Romanian village, with folklore elements and buildings originating from all historical provinces. You can admire steep-roofed peasant homes, thatched barns, log cabins, watermills, churches, oil presses, road crucifixes and many more.
2nd stop: Wine tasting tour in Bucharest – traditional wines, cheese & dry sausages
Romania – the world’s 13th largest wine producer with over 2000 years of viticulture tradition. We believe that knowledge of a region’s food and wine is intrinsic to understanding its culture. Thus, the next stop is at Bucharest’s first wine bar, in a century old manor. The traditional architecture, elegant interior, the wine bottles displayed like books on shelves and the local specialist create a cozy atmosphere. The perfect setting for a wine tasting session in Bucharest.
Whether you’re a casual wine drinker or a true connoisseur, you’ll enjoy yourself as you discover the distinctive “terroir” of famous Romanian vineyards like Dealu Mare, where the wine is nicknamed “liquid gold”. You’ll be able to taste different types of local wines, traditional cheese & dry sausages.
Becky K., USA: “Village Museum and Wine Tasting”
Mihai was awesome; he picked us up on time at our hotel and was a great guide at the Village Museum. He didn’t rush us as our two girls were playing around. He is very knowledgeable about Romanian history; it was fascinating to hear. The wine tasting was fabulous. It was fun to drink wine and not only learn about the wine but hear more about Romania’s history. After the wine tasting, Mihai dropped us off, at our request in the old town. Thank you, Mihai, for being so kind to myself and my family!
