In the commune of Pomezeu at number 62, there is a unique rural museum point. It is about a household like most of them were in this part of the country, a hundred years ago. It is less known that the building, which houses an important collection of peasant objects, was inscribed on the list of historical monuments in Romania.
Specific to these places, the house is one of those with closed courtyards. Inside them there is the household composed of: the house, the glade, the hill (a kind of garage for carts and other agricultural tools), huts for animals and birds. The home of Floare Morgovan stands out due to the loft, the porch, from which you enter the room from the street, also called the room for “guests”. In the courtyard part of the house is the living room.
Also in the hall were the bread oven and the stove for cooking. The walls of the house were built of earthen bricks, “vaioaga”, and plastered with clay.
The traditional house from Pomezeu may be the best argument for a beautiful journey into the past.

A mountain biking route, with a medium degree of difficulty. It can be covered in half a day, taking into account the visit to the Crystal Cave from Farcu mine. Trvelling it, cyclists can see some of the most representative objectives of Padurea Craiului. It is a route for well-trained cyclists.
From Remetea we start towards Josani and at the junction marked with a road sign indicating the direction to Goila, we turn left. After the first houses in Goila, there is a Y shaped junction, and we will take the road on the left, which starts first to descend slightly, and then more accentuated, through a small forest. We continue ahead, until we reach Vălani de Pomezeu where we will turn left towards Câmpani de Pomezeu. There are basically two ways to do this: either on the county road or on the communal road, which connects the two villages. If you follow the second option, you will have more to climb.
