On the 29th of June it’s Saints Peter and Paul’s Day.
Each year on this day there’s a big two-days fair at the Village Museum in Bucharest. There are shows with traditional dances and songs, but the most interesting thing to see these two days are the displays of the craftsmen coming to Bucharest from all over the country. You can see, buy, taste and even watch them make about anything you can think of: rugs, traditional costumes, dolls, masks, sweets, pottery, house decorations, glass, wood, straw, bone and leather objects, jewels, musical instruments, icons painted on wood or glass and many more. Everything is hand-made, using only natural materials and even the environment, the displays and the craftsmen are a joy for visitors’ eyes.
Here are some scenes. We hope you enjoy them.
