For tourists visiting Bucharest it will be a wonderful opportunity to have at least an idea of how to present the most remote areas in Romania, remaining in the city. In short it will be a nice walk in the open air, among the landscapes of Romania.

Obviously the best time to visit is between the spring and summer, when some of these houses are open to visitors, who can browse through bathrooms, kitchens and bedrooms (closed in winter). On weekends and during the holidays, then it is not uncommon for talent shows to organize folk or you can find a souvenir to take home.
