Jina village is one of the few communities in the country located at high altitude (about 1000 metres). Orthodox Church dedicated to the "Annunciation" dates from 1795, and in the yard is an ossuary painted in 1826. Ileana Morariu opened a museum in her household. Born in the village, returned home after her studies as a teacher of music and drawing, Ileana Morariu preserved peasant objects that she inherited. After a while she exposed the most beautiful objects, arranged at home in a "guest room". In 2006 she established Pastoral Museum. Ileana Morariu wanted to suggest the traditional Jina household and imagined an interior with old ceramic or porcelain dishes, festiv...e costumes, vests and coats. The walls are covered with icons, hand crosses (one of 1855), towels and old photos. Nothing is missing from the old household: nice sewn pillow or bedding, tables, chairs, benches, chests of drawers. Interior textiles complement the setting. The walls are blue as their old homes.
