‘Alexandru Vlahuță’ Memorial Museum

‘ALEXANDRU VLAHUȚĂ’ MEMORIAL MUSEUM

Around the Vrancea vineyards from the Cotești and Bordești hills one can find the mansion where the poet Alexandru Vlahuță (1858-1919) lived for 14 years. The house belonged to his wife, Ruxanda Gâlcă, received as a family heirloom. This place was often visited by great personalities of that time: Barbu Ștefănescu Delavrancea, Ion Luca Caragiale and the painter Nicolae Grigorescu, one of his in-laws.

In 1926 the poet’s wife turned the house into a cultural establishment — serving as a girls’ school for the girls nearby and a literary club for artists.

The museum was inaugurated in 1958, offering visitors two perspectives: memorial and documentary. Probably the most fascinating room of the museum is the poet’s office, where he wrote some of his works. On the outside, an annex hosts the carriage owned by the Vlahuță family. In this carriage, during World War I, the Vlahuță family packed their belongings and moved to Bârlad.
