Romania // The Banat //

The Ethnographic Museum

In 1868, the municipality demolished most of the redundant citadel, leaving two bastions to the east and west of Piața Unirii. The eastern one is occupied by the Ethnographic Museum. Varied folk costumes, painted glass icons and furnished rooms illustrate the region’s ethnic diversity, but don’t provide a comprehensive history – for example, there’s no mention of the thousands of Serbs deported in 1951 when the Party fell out with Tito’s neighbouring Yugoslavia.
