  • A few km from Horezu, South towards Craiova, in the village of Maldaresti, there are two interesting fortified residences to resist "headphones" enemy incursions. To arrive there you must follow the signs for the museum complex. The first Dara we visited is Dara Maldarescu, beautiful and massive rectangular building that looks more like a fortress than a House, with a single entrance on the ground floor which was used for both people and animals, with few Windows on the first floor and an elegant Colonnade at second floor. The tour leads to the premises on the ground floor, to animals, and to the apartments to the two upper floors, elegant and well furnished enough especially in relation to the rural nature of the context. The terrace on the second floor is very nice indeed. The building, by the mid-19th century, it was bought by I.G. Duca, a local notable who was also a politician on the national level, that in neighbouring land built a an elegant country residence, this not fortified, surrounded by an elegant portico and still furnished with original furniture. Leaving the complex and across the street, almost opposite, stands the CuIa Greceanu, more erratic, which is massive and well appointed, less harmonic of the former but also fascinating. Thereupon the cuIa Greceanu can visit the beautiful church of Saint Nicholas who we couldn't visit because it shut. The visit to the three buildings in the complex takes about an hour, it is certainly time well spent. because you know a typology of buildings now rare even in those parts and unknown in our country. Are some hidden gems that are worth discovering. One last note of the order of merit for the Romanian Guide available that went out of his way to make himself understandable even in Italian.

  • A wonderful place, where the history of the family of Olteni boyars is placed in value, as a testimony in the ages of a way of life. Stories of yesteryear, historical indications, moments and facts are passionately exceeded by the guide of the complex, Mrs. Mihaela Frumuşelu.
