Bucharest – National Village Museum (Hovel)

I like the word hovel and I should use it more, but in this case that’s what the museum have called this eighteenth century building from northern Romania. It was used as a temporary home by a farmer tending his sheep and looking after his land.

It has two rooms inside, a small entrance hall on the left and everything else in the room on the right. The entrance hall has planks of wood on the floor, the everything else room has a gravel and compacted earth floor. Very luxurious.
