Enescu's wife Maria Tescanu Rosetti inherited the palace from her former father-in-law, the landowner and politician Gheorghe Grigore Cantacuzino, who had it...More

Both the the Cantacuzino Palace and his residence are very interesting to view. One tell the story of his work and many achievements (including all the medals he got). The little house tells his dramatic life story.

Having seen this museum on television, I was anxious to see it for real. It involved a long walk along the Calea Victoriei and when I arrived I was disappointed to discover it closed. I had been told that it would be open at 10...More
