Museum Of The Romanian Peasant

A colorful name but definitely something that does not make it justice for others from around the world. This museum actually takes you through the history of rural life of Romania, one that is filled with interesting facts that you will love. Just make sure that you take a guided tour because not much English is available in the museum and you may want to learn about what you see.

There is a region in the middle of the city known as Centrul Vechi. Romanians refer to the main area of a city as the center so the literal translation would be The Old Centre. This is also the region that reminds tourists why Bucharest was called Little Paris at one point in history.
