Museum of Traditional Folk Civilization


Set aside most of a day to explore Sibiu’s wonderful open-air Museum of Traditional Folk Civilization (Muzeul Astra) on Calea Răşinari, south of the centre; take trolleybus #1 to the end of the line. Set against a mountain backdrop, the museum offers a fantastic insight into rural life, with authentically furnished wooden houses, churches and mills; there’s also a traditional inn serving local food and drink.
