Collection(s)In a landscape unchanged for generations, in Slatinioara village, located on the coast and enclosed by Parâng Mountain, Momârlanului Museum awaits visitors. Momârlanii of Jiu Valley, the population of shepherds who lived in the hills by ancient traditions, distinct from people coming from all parts to work in mines, have found a good representation in Slatinioara Momârlanului Museum. Family Elena Mălinesc and Petru Gălăţan are momârlani of Livezeni and Dâlja Mare, former villages now included in the town of Petroşani. They worked in mine until retirement, but took care of animals as Momârlanii. In a wooden house with traditional architecture in their backyard, they arranged a museum with objects collected only from Momârlani villages, many of rare beauty. Determined to fight for the preservation of traditions still alive, they founded an association in 2009 and organize Nedeia on the holiday of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, Christmas traditions and festivals that gather together hundreds of local inhabitants, leading old habits in the future.
