Established on April 12, 1929, “Romulus Vuia” National Ethnographic Park is an open-air museum and one of the two sections of the Ethnographic Museum of Transylvania. This section was named “Romulus Vuia”, thus paying homage to the personality of the founder of this park.

The first sector includes technical installations and peasant workshops dating from the 18th – 20th centuries, which illustrate the traditional techniques of wood and iron processing, gold getting, wool fabrics processing, clay and stone processing, cereals crushing and obtaining the edible oil. The second sector contains traditional peasant households representative for distinct ethnographic areas in Transylvania, including constructions dating from the 17th and 20th centuries, equipped with the whole necessary household inventory.

Three of the most beautiful wooden churches in Transylvania are preserved in the “Romulus Vuia” National Ethnographic Park: The Church from Cizer, Sălaj County, built in 1773 by Nicola Ursu (Horea); The church from Chiraleş, Bistriţa Năsăud County, 17th century and the Church from Petrindu, Sălaj County, dated in 1612.
