0.0/5 rating (0 votes)

The Museum of Rural-Folkloric and Cultural Heritage has been functioning for the last four years in Zervata of Sami (in the old primary school building). A number of exhibits take the visitor back to the past everyday life of the inhabitants of the area. Residents of Zervata and of the other surrounding villages donated enshrined heirlooms and beloved pieces of their lives to the Museum, thus making them property of the following generations.

The Museum is opened daily during the summer and one can visit it in the winter, after communicating by phone with the President of the Local Council of Zervata at the number 26740-22019.
