Mihai Emenescu





Mihai Emenescu Mihai Emenescu

Near today's railway station in Filiaşi, there is a very small, old building, which is the former railway station of the town, dating to the 19th Century. This modest building is one of the many historical monuments of the town, besides many others in the area.

Mihai Emenescu Mihai Emenescu

Here, in the 18th century was, for a short time, the greatest Romanian poet, Mihai Eminescu. As you can see, everywhere in my country, each place can be, very easily, a wonderful one.

Romania is a land of stories, everywhere.

Mihai Emenescu

These supports for the eaves of the roof are done in the traditional Romanian manner, being carved into a stylised horse head. Horse heads in traditional Romanian culture had an apotropaic function - they were supposed to turn away evil.
