Full description

After pick-up, have your first stop at 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.

Admire steep-roofed peasant homes, thatched barns, log cabins, watermills, churches, oil presses, road crucifixes, and many more. Then continue to your second stop, a wine tasting. Enjoy traditional Romanian wines, cheese, and dry sausages.

Romania is the world’s 13th largest wine producer with over 2000 years of viticulture tradition. It is believed 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 sommelier create a perfect setting for wine tasting. 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”. Sample local wines, traditional cheese, and dry sausages.
