Another old house in Village Museum...
The Village Museum was established in 1936 and it contains over 300 wooden houses, windmills, churches etc. from all over the country. If you don't plan to visit Romania's rural areas - and even if you do - you shouldn't miss this museum which is one of the largest of its kind in Europe. Many of the buildings are originals which were brought here in pieces and reassembled. The oldest houses date as far back as the 17C. Behind the project from the start was ethnographer Dimitrie Gusti (1880 - 1955) who wanted the museum to mirror as closely as possible the aspects of the rural life. Because of this the museum is organized as a real village, with clusters of houses being linked by winding paths. This makes for a pleasant stroll especially if you find yourself in Bucharest during the summer, when the city is hot and dusty. Sometimes the museum hosts crafts fairs and folk music and dance festivals. Address: Soseaua Kisellef 28 -30.

une maison au charme tout particulier, où rien n'est rigoureusement droit ou trop calculé.
Le charme de l'improvisation et de l'originalité.
La photo est un rien surexposée à mon avis, mais cela n'enlève rien au charme.
Bien à toi.

C'est l'exemple typique de ce qui fait l'intérêt de Trekearth, partager ses connaissances, apprendre d'autres. Merci, Isabela, de nous montrer cette vieille maison et de comprendre mieux les us et coutumes du pays. Cette maison ne manque pas d'élégance et présente un style architectural tout à fait original.
Très bien fait.

Ce frumusete rustica ... Ca sa te mustruluiesc un pic ... poza e un pic cam saturata .. nu stiu daca e o chestie buna sau rea .. si nu stiu daca puteai, insa daca eram in locul tau, si nu incapea toata casuta in poza, o luam macar mai din stanga, asa incat sa o iei mai in perspectiva, adica din colt sa se vada 2 fete laterale. Sper sa nu te superi pe mine :) pt critica.
Detaliile au iesit foarte bine.

Hi Isabela, pretty shot, I immediately recognized the place in the thumbnail already, so sharpness is excellent. The nice POV takes us along the path like inviting us into the house; good idea to include beautiful flowers on both sides of the frame. Thanks for sharing and regards, Daniel

I believe Isabela, that you don't have to go to this museum village to see those incredibly beautiful houses. Just driving Romania's country side keeps your head spinning round and round to see them all.
What a picturesque country of yours, Isabela.
Now, when communist era came to an end Romania will take honorable place in world community according to her great achievements.

Is this in the Herastrau park?
Your house is so cute! You have chosen a nice time for shooting it last year, because this year spring is too late...
I like Your country and your nice people. You care so much for the culture...

daca tot ai zis ca accepti cu placere sfaturi,atunci o sa incerc sa te ajut in continuare.o sa te ajut mai mult prin critici,mai putin prin laude...
In acesta foto vad ca ai vrut sa prezinti o casa traditionala...dar a iesit cam rau,pt ca ai taiat din casa in partea dreapta.
