Walking on the narrow streets of Rășinari offers an opportunity to discover traditional houses, and see local people and customs. In the center of the village, one can find the Ethnographic Museum, old and new churches, but also the houses where Emil Cioran and Octavian Goga lived. The village of Rășinari was designated in 2012 as one of “The most beautiful villages in Romania”.
The Sadu 1 Energy Museum is located in the building of the oldest hydroelectric plant in operation in Romania. It was inaugurated on December 16, 1896. With all the equipment in working order, the plant itself represents the most valuable exhibit of this museum. On the upper floor, above the machine room, in the former rooms for the operating personnel, 3 rooms have been set up in which are exposed equipment, tools, materials, and documents that illustrate stages of energy development in southern Transylvania.
