The first ‘living museum’ is set to open this summer at Tecsesti in Romania’s Apuseni Mountains.
The project, which is currently being crowdfunded, aims to provide a sustainable future for the small village with only 14 inhabitants focusing on the area’s natural resources and authentic culture. Its visitors will have the opportunity to live in a place that reconstructs the region’s history, learn the legends about the Dacians, dragons and werewolves, and get creative at a ceramics workshop. The museum will reproduce houses from the Neolithic period and revamp the village school from more recent times. A garden with vegetables and fruit trees will be the source of food for visitors, and a natural spring will supply the water for animals.
