Ländliche Architektur in Rumänien
The artwork of the houses is in detail,thumbnails mostly don`t show it.It needs to enlarge the images.
Images are taken in Bukowina (in the northern part of Romania).
Most of the images are taken in villages on a small country road between Vadu Moldovei and Paltinoasa ,some 20 km to Suceava.I think you will find this type of architecture around Suceava.

I was wandering why some Swiss houses look like Romanian once?
The Saxons in Transylvania don't use that design and I doubt very much that the Swiss came to teach Romanian peasants to build houses in the same manner
I am not an Architect but I was wandering if it is possible that the people called Romansh in Switzerland are related to Romanians and that's how we get these similarities
Or is it possible that some Romanian shepherds spread it all over?
The influence of the Romanians/Vlachs over the Slavs is attested by the Polish Historian Jan Dlugosz also.
The Annals of Jan Dlugosz , XV Cent.AD
"Stephan, Voivode of Moldavia, has died while among the Walachians, whose ancestors had been expelled from Italy, it is said they were the Volsci, and who, having cunningly squeezed out the former Ruthenian lords and settlers, as their numbers increased, adopted their faith and customs, thus making it easier for them to assume control”
Note1: Dlugosz shows how the Walachians took over the Slavic Ruthenians and became their leaders without war. Hence Ukrain = Crai = Romanian “Crai” = Walachian city of Craiova = Crai
Just a short note here
Note2: The Valchians, as the Russian Primery Chronicle describes took over the Slavic tribes, learned their language and became their leaders.
I strongly believe that the Romanians left an imprint on the Slavs not the other way around
Look at the Brincoveanu style architecture.It is called Romanian style architecture.
As it is described by
Russian Primary Chronicle (Laurentian Text), XI Cent.
"For when the Vlaks attacked the Danubian Slavs, settled among them, and did
them violence, the latter came and made their homes by the Vistula, and were then called Lyakhs. Of these Lyakhs some were called Polyanians,some Lutichians,some Mazovians, and still others were called Derevlians... Radimichians and the Viatichians sprang from the Lyakhs". PS
The Romanians/Vlachs subjugated the Slavs and settled among them creating the Slavic countries known today.
Also the Lipovenii were used in Romania for hard labor like digging ditches.
The Gypsies were used for hard labor also specially in Moldavia and Wallacia
There are also few Polish Villages in Moldova. (can google them). The Pols were used as laborors in the Salt mines. None of their houses has any artistic or architectural stile.
lipovenians settled mostly in the Danube Delta and Dobrogea (30.000) around 300 lipovenians live in northen Bukovina which is in Ukraine now.those are Romanian houses (part of them have slavic influences) and some of that building style can be found also in Maramures and Transylvania.Stating that those are lipovenian houses is like saying romanians don`t have houses in Suceava`s country side.Get the point.
Thank you,Anton,for the info
btw these houses are not romanian but lipovanians (russian old-believers who settled in northen Romania in XVII-XVIII centuries)
Your website is inspiring! We are now planning to visit Romania. But, it would be such a helpful service to label the photos in this section with the name of the nearest town or village. thank-you.
