Romania is known as a country with rich gold resources. The Gold Museum, also known as the Mineral Collection of Brad, is one of the main tourist attractions in the Apuseni Mountains.

Founded 100 years ago, the museum contains a collection of over 2,000 exhibits gathered from all around the world. Some of the museum’s most remarkable exhibits are those made of native gold, found in the local Metaliferi Mountains. Some of the exhibits resemble the shape of a feather, a Dacian flag, a crystal or even a lizard. The lizard shaped piece, although only seven tenths of a gram of gold, was valued at some EUR 3 million.
