Stretching north from Piața Victoriei, Şoseaua Kiseleff leads into the more pleasant, leafy suburbs. At no. 3, the Museum of the Romanian Peasant (Muzeul Țăranului Român) is a must-see, giving an insight into the country’s varied rural traditions, with exhibits on everything from costume and textiles to glass painted icons; to the rear there’s a beautiful wooden church, as well as an excellent souvenir shop. Don’t miss, in the basement, a curious exhibition of Communist iconography, featuring one of the very few pictures still remaining of Ceauşescu.
