Its evolution received a big influence from the Otoman Empire, from the French Revolution, from Communism and now from the West. In just a few hours, you will experience the urban atmosphere of narrow streets with Beaux Arts buildings and elegant cafés, the blocks that remind of communism and the simplicity of rural art and life in one of Europe’s largest open-air museums – the Village Museum.
