„Mihai Eminescu” memorial house

The house where the Romanian national poet Mihai Eminescu spent his childhood was rebuilt in 1934 and turned into a museum in 1950, in order to keep the memory of Romanian’s greatest poet forever alive. The interiors reconstruct the atmosphere of the Eminovici home as it originally used to be during the poet’s childhood. Centruies old pieces of furniture and objects that used to belong to the family are presently kept here. Quite recently there was built a centre for the study of Mihai Eminescu’s work, and efforts are made to endow this centre with a complete collction of copies of the poet’s manuscipts and a comprehensive documentary library. A small church and a few of the family member’s tombs can be still visited in the courtyard.
