If you enjoy open-air museums and you taking a trip to Romania, consider taking a tour of the Arbanasi Village in Bulgaria, just past the Romanian southern border, because even if you are not an expert, you will absolutely fall in love with its remarkable architecture.
The moment you step into the village, you will not be able to put your camera down, because every house is like a miniature citadel, each with a unique stone structure, thick walls, and wooden window frames. The entire village has been declared a historical and architectural reserve, and it has made the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites.
The ceilings, doors, furniture and windows are decorated with detailed wood engravings, and the walls are layered with beautiful flower-painted plasterwork – a wonderfully picturesque sight, which is why the charming little village attracts not only tourists, but also architects, painters, archeologists, and historians.
In Arbanasi Village there are 80 houses, of which 36 are considered Bulgarian cultural landmarks, as well as 5 churches and 2 monasteries built at the end of the 16th century, also made of stone and bearing the same ornate interiors, with wood engravings and gorgeous paintings.
