Cluj Ethnographic Park: exploring the past of rural Transylvania

The Ethnographic Park in Cluj, which bears the name of its founder, the ethnographer Romulus Vuia (1887-1963), is the ideal setting for a promising journey into the history of rural Transylvania. Established in 1929, the Ethnographic Park, outdoor section of the Transylvanian Museum of Ethnography, is the first open-air museum in Romania. Located on a surface of 14 hectares, it includes over 50 objects, representing various aspects of the rural life of Transylvania between 18th-20th centuries: households, churches, mills and other technical installations, but also fruit trees, free from any chemicals for over half a century. The programme of the event will include a musical moment, the performance of old traditions and a rustic Transylvanian dinner, offered by expert chefs of local delicacies, where participants will have the unique chance to re-discover the authentic flavours of the past.
