Olari Village

Former Olari Village has imposed itself on the tourist map of Romania, and a few years ago on the UNESCO World Patrimony Map because of the pottery artisans who carry on further the tradition of their ancestors and the town fame. As the former Olari village name suggests, the place is an old centre of folk pottery, whose roots descend to the Dacian epoch. A pattern often encountered in the Horezu ceramic is the cock, and in terms of colours, the artisans use a rich chromatic palette, the red and the yellow occupying an important place. All these traditional elements are part of the secret recipe that gives originality to the Horezu ceramic but especially an artistic value.
