Camil Petrescu described in his novel "Last night of love, first night of war" walking through Campulung Muscel. Based on this and on historical postcards, an artistic plan for the historical centre has been elaborated, as it can be seen on the page of the city hall (see link).
On the 21st of May, in frame of a communication session at the "Ion Mincu" University of Architecture and Urban Planning, the plan had been presented. The reported visited subsequently the city.
The historic centre of Campulung Muscel, a city situated at the foot of the Carpathian mountains, is marked by green areas. We already reported about the Golescu vila garden restoration. Other green spaces are the tree allignements on the "Pardon" boulevard, the city park "Merci" and the Kretzulescu park (after which the structural funds project is named) of the formal bath establishment. The works on rehabilitating the buildings and the park here to a research centre of traditional architecture already started as we visited the site.
Campulung Muscel is rich also in other green spaces, including vilas, such as the Mirea villa, but these are not subject of this report.
