This is what we call a ‘soba’ in Romanian which would translate to ‘stove’ in Englsih. It’s made from terracotta/ceramic and it’s built in the floor of my room. As you can see, it’s quite tall (reaching almost up to the ceiling) and works with woods to warm up the room in the winter.
The people building these stoves are called ‘sobari’ and unfortunately there aren’t that many because nowadays people are using radiators so you can say it’s a lost art.
