Understand Romanian (sub)culture at the Romanian Kitsch Museum

A museum showcasing Romanian kitsch items, ranging from a life-size Dracula to communist-era glass fish, opened in the country's capital.

The 215 exhibits also include a flat-screen television with flickering flames imitating an open fireplace, a cushion that looks like a one-euro coin, neon-lit Christian crosses, and a reclining naked man whose body is covered with 50 lei notes (each worth about $12).

The first thing you see upon entering the museum is a copy of Michelangelo's world-famous statue of David. But that's the only reference to classical art in this space devoted to kitsch.

The statue, a miniature copy of the 16th-century century sculpture, wears a gaudy gilt necklace with a large U.S. dollar pendant and stands on a sequined cloth, setting the tone for visitors to the Romanian Kitsch Museum.
