The fascinating world of villages


In Harman Commune, Brasov County, at 5 Km away from Brasov is the ethnographic collection of ‘Vatra Harmanului’ Museum, which displays items of the fascinating world of the ancient villages. The Museum is located just 50 meters away from the Harman Fortress, included in UNESCO heritage. For a moment, we can find here the serenity of the porch, watched over by the pillars engraved with solar patterns and we can abandon ourselves in the privacy of the country house, where we can find the simplicity and decency of the country people.

Ethnographic collection

‘People who come here find the fascinating world of the ancient villages, painted or sculpted furniture, giving the impression of proper use, combined with the magical and religious faiths of the traditional people. Forming a symbolic solar circle together, the holiday clothing are glowing in a stylistic and chromatic beauty. Not less spectacular is the ceramic collection of Easter eggs or Transylvanian icons painted on glass’, told us Mr. Adrian Micu, custodian of ‘Vatra Hărmanului’ Musuem.

Traditional pottery

The traditional pottery collection includes beautiful items, among which two pots called ‘bride and groom’, items which were used only in weddings. Subtly decorated, varnished, with flowers painted as for the traditional pottery, the pots remained in the museum as the silent witnesses of our existence. The living matter submits to it and dies for the use of the object, the fire is burning the earth skin and eternizes the shape.

Invitation to the museum

Tourists visiting this museum will be pleased to find out that here they can also hear the ancient sound of the alphorn, flute, or reed pipe. We are waiting for you to enjoy the beauties of the ancient villages in the Vatra Harmanului Museum!
