At the border between Alba and Hunedoara counties, in Glod village from Almasu Mare commune, in a spectacular tourist area of ​​Apuseni, a family from Arad has developed a special tourist attraction.

Alin and Dorina Musat have rebuilt three almost 200-year-old houses, which they now offer to tourists who want to spend a few days in nature.

The two decided to exchange their lives abroad for the place they were to call “home”. It was love at first sight. But it took a while to get everything ready, and Alin made the Milan-Glod commute for a while. He worked in Italy to make money to complete the investment at Glod. The houses used to function as a Museum, School and City Hall.

“Casa Glod is the perfect place where you want to escape from everyday life. The houses are about 200 years old, have been reconditioned by keeping the original elements and adding elements related to comfort (bathrooms, utilities, etc.). Each house has its own story. The most appreciated by tourists is the House Museum. It received this name because it is the oldest of the houses of our complex. Next is the City Hall and the School which are completed and available for accommodation “, this is how the less common tourist attraction is presented. in Glod village, located on the territory of Almasu Mare commune. The total investment cost almost 140,000 euros.

The three houses were relocated from Maramures. The Musats bought them, dismantled them piece by piece and moved them to this picturesque place in Apuseni.


“My wife and I tried to save some traditional houses, we reconditioned them and today we give them back to all those who want to see how they lived 200-300 years ago. It was a titanic job and I can’t say I’m done , when you have a household, there are always things to do, we are still in the phase of reconditioning a house, we have completely completed two houses and we offer the possibility to accommodate or visit these homes.

For us it is not a business, it is a lifestyle that we have adopted and we are proud to live in such homes. The houses are made like a lego, like a puzzle. The wood is notched in such a way that the house must be built all around. In order to be able to move them, they are marked with wax in such a way that each wood reaches its place “, says Alin Musat.

The houses are built of oak wood, with a shingle roof. “It was very difficult to recondition the old wood, but it was a challenge that we managed to overcome,” the man added. He states that this area is also called the “Garden of Heaven in the Apuseni”.

The tourist objectives are impressive: Glodului Gorges, Cibului Gorges, Cheile Cibului Monastery, Negraia-Patrangeni Monastery, Caprei Gorges, Pesterea Feciorilor, Gaura Fara Fund, Achim Emilian Museum – The first private museum in Romania.
