Sibiu - Astra Park

Last weekend, coming back from our short, but beautiful trip in Orastie, we stopped in Sibiu for a couple of hours, to eat and to have a break before the Valea Oltului difficult drive. Bogdan came with a brilliant ideea, to visit Astra Sibiu Museum, a huge outoor space filled with traditional homes and equipment used in ancient households.

From the first steps inside, we could feel the magic: the smell of freshly mown grass and the lake, the diffuse heat passing the leaves, the miniature frogs croaking all the way. The kids were fascinated by the little itsy-bitsy frogs, not bigger than their nails, swarming everywhere.

Some of the households were transplanted with animals and plants, so you can even see chicken, sheep and rabbits, as well as incredible climbing roses and wild flowers. 

The restaurant in the museum is (how else?) a traditional one, in a building which was also a tavern in an old village, hundred years old. Beans with fresh onion, polenta with matured cheese and cream, our lunch was deliciously smelling and tasting!

Have a look at our pictures below, you can feel and even smell the magic of this place! It's a beautiful day trip if you're in the area, and on the other side of the lake is the Zoo, also a beautiful spot for kids. 

We charged our batteries for a difficult week, yesterday I had a difficult maxillary surgery, Bogdan went to Budapest and back, so we already think forward to the weekend to come.

Have a beautiful day and thanks for reading!
