Sightseeing

George Enescu Museum (Muzeul National George Enescu)

Mistakenly believed to be the great Romanian composer George Enescu's former home, this outstanding Secession house was in fact built for landowner George Cantacuzino in 1905, and many older Bucharest residents still refer to it as the Cantacuzino Palace. In fact, Enescu, a modest man whose main house was next to the railway tracks in Sinaia (he adored the sound of trains) lived in the smaller building at the rear of the main palace after marrying Cantacuzino's widow. The palace became state property in 1955, the year of Enescu's death, and a year later opened as a museum dedicated to his life and work. There are, disappointingly, just three rooms open to the public, displaying memorabilia and artefacts from the eventful life of Romania's most famous composer.

Britain,
Visted here in 2010. Enescu should be better know world wide. Amazing composer. Smaller building at back of Cantacuzino is where he lived.
