Since shedding communism in 1990, Bucharest's buzzing cultural scene has become even more expansive and diverse, with a more worldly interest than other Romanian cities like Cluj, who remain fixated on regional culture.
With a strong tradition of performing arts epitomised by the regular classical concerts of the Roman Athenaeum, Bucharest also contains the country's best visual arts collections in the National Museum of Art and the Zambaccian Museum's smaller, more specified collection. Two highlights are the excellent Peasant Museum and the outdoor exhibits of the Village Museum focusing on Romania's more traditional culture. Overall, Bucharest boasts some 37 museums, 22 theaters, 18 art galleries, an opera house and several concert venues, plus a clutch of cool jazz clubs and other energetic nightspots, to keep you busy and out of bed.
has a good and honest review and it gives me PRICES! Which is what I,ve looked for and never found. THANK YOU!!!
A rich culture indeed.
From where can I buy tickets? Will it work during Easter this year 18-21 April?
We found this museum to be really interesting. The traditional costumes were absolutely stunning and, having travelled quite a lot in the region, we could see the various themes / similarities to other nearby countries and cultures. There is something very specific and beautiful about Romania, and this place gives a great insight.
how much does it cost to see this museum
It is a very impressive building. The quality of the Romanian craftmanship is high; marble, wood, draperies all 100% Romanian made. Worth a visit. Don't forget the history.
it is definitely a place worth visiting
it was awesome in its simplicity
this could be an international museum of stature with more marketing. positively awesome
Even though it was built with the sweat of my people, the building is an architectural monument and it must be seen. I don't think that the Romanian people should kill themselves because this building exists, but to be proud that we are free now and living in a democratic country. You have no right to say that!
