Today was a guided visit to the Bucharest’s Village Museum. The museum consists of homes and a few churches from different provinces and times. The thing that sets this museum apart is that none of the structures are replicas. They were all broken down from their ‘real existence’ and put back together to make up the museum.
After the museum our guide took us to a wine bar for a tasting. We tasted some superb Romanian wines. I was especially in love with the whites and rose.
The tastings were healthy portions and lunch was needed immediately afterwards. Back in the old town, the guide recommended Caru cu Bere 4 for good Romanian food. She chose our meal before she left us and it did not disappoint. Polenta with cheese and ham; mixed meat stuffed cabbage; donut with sour cream and fruit.
The bonus of using a guide… you find out where to go for the best views.
