Collaboration between the experts of the national museums in Romania, Ukraine, and the Republic of Moldova has resulted in an intriguing and unique exhibition that captivates the visitor with the splendor and mysteries of an old Neolithic civilization, the CUCUTENI-TRYPILLIA.
Composed of more than 450 items, the collection is among the most significant discovered so far.
Tracing its roots back to the 5th millennium BCE. Cucuteni-Trypillia is considered to be the first great civilization of Europe having occupied the area that is now Romania, Ukraine, and the Republic of Moldova.

At present there are more questions than answers about this important civilization. The more we find out about Cucuteni - Trypillia, the more this civilization becomes mysterious, especially with regards to the place and role in the world history.
