Experience Romanian culture and tradition!

Experience the unique, the friendly, the unforgettable!

You live in a fast-changing world, and we challenge you to stop for an oasis of peace, creativity, and tradition. Discover Romanian culture beyond a museum’s glass boxes and the stories of a tourist guide. Palamari’s Cultural Center brings culture and tradition only a stone’s throw away from your daily activities and the busy city environment.                                                                                                  

Palamari’s traditional architectural complex consists of two wooden houses and an Orthodox church originating from Maramures.  It re-creates an atmosphere of a time long forgotten and the spirit of Romanian culture.  Set in a backdrop of stunning views of majestic mountains, terraced hills, and evergreen forests, its treasures are waiting to be explored.

More than just an exhibition, Palamari’s Cultural Center has a “hands on” approach and invites you to step in the shoes of a Romanian craft-maker and re-create tradition. Through interactive workshops, you can learn not only old crafting techniques, but also new and creative methods. Depending on your preferences, you can enjoy a wide range of activities for all ages, discover the rustic ambiance around the center, or surprise your family, friends, and guests with a unique experience for your meetings, leisure activities, and holidays.

Are you visiting Transylvania region, Bran area or Dracula’s Castel? Are you looking for something to do in Brasov ? Do you want to have an active holiday and spend your free time in a creative way? We have what you want!

Discover a place where time stood still…Experience it!  Re-create it!  Take it with you!
