Doctor Nicolae Minovici’s Villa with Bells - modelled on an Oltenian cula - was purpose built in 1906​ to serve as the first ethnography museum in Romania. Following a process of restoration, the authentic Neo-Romanian style house was re-opened in 2016 to host the Minovici Brothers: On Pioneering Medicine and the Spiritual Universe exhibition. Minovici, who founded both the first public ambulance service in Bucharest and the city's first emergency hospital, donated the ethnographic exhibits himself. Highlights include ceramics, pottery and traditional costumes. The villa itself is not to overlooked: a wonderful building that is a joy to stroll through. To get there, walk north-east from Piaţa Presei Libere or take bus No. 131, 182, 282, 301, 330, 331, 335 to the Mioriţa Fountain.
