The poet Tudor Arghezi is one of the foremost figures in Romanian literature. He lived in this house for most of his life. His wife came from a rural background - as such, his home decor is totally Romanian traditional countryside. By the poet's own will the house was transformed into a museum after his death. Filled now with artefacts from his life, the museum also has a formidable library of several thousands of volumes. There are paintings of the poet, the awards he's received - his entire life, especially the professional period is quite well fleshed out. The building itself is a nice example of 20th century architecture. It has a beautiful garden.

Casa Memoriala Tudor Arghezi Reviews & Ratings
Hidden gem. The house in which Tudor Arghezi, renowned Romanian writer, lived and created in the last part of his wife. The whole complex is made to mimic a country estate with bee houses, orchards, lots of flowers and grass with a twist, it's located in the middleof town, between high buildings and heavy traffic. It is one of a few forgotten corners of peace, quiet, nature and some history that can be found in town.
Easy to Access, hard to find a parking spot but not really that much to see
Istorical place with good energy
Great place to visit in the spring.
A green oasis minutes away from Bucharest downtown, probably the largest orchards across the city, surrounding an old villa that still belongs to well-known poet Tudor Arghezi's family. It definitely worth a visit - it is unique and surprising spot within the city!
