Arkhai Sculpture Park was built by sculptor Ernő Bartha, a nationally and internationally recognized artist. Its construction began in 2008 and has been in continuous development ever since. The park is unique due to the monumental size hay sculptures it hosts. The works and the remodeling of the land were made in 3 years, with stones brought from Leghia and Vişta and rocks from Valea Ierii.
The first construction was the stone fence which does not divide, but defines, showing that here begins another world, different from the life we live in.
The Bacchus Sanctuary (50 m²) is located on the right side of the park, on the facade is a sculpture, carved in 2012, after a relic of Bacchus from the Roman Age, found in Dobrogea. The central figure is Bacchus, then, in the upper right side is the Thracian Horseman, and in the lower part is the Fruit Pan. On the left are the nymphs, dancing. In front of the cellar is the summer pavilion (60 m²) and a traditional beehive oven.
Also, we can find a 100-year-old oak house, brought from Maramureș, which has a traditional beehive oven inside.
The park officially opened its doors in 2014, and has hosted ever since numerous events, such as: concerts, outdoor movie screenings, creative camps and workshops, programs for children and youth (horseback riding, textile workshops, ceramics, theater, etc.).
Visiting this open-air museum is possible only by making an appointment in advance.
