Casa Poenaru, Strada Eugeniu Carada 10, Craiova 200390, România


The Poenaru House was built in 1890-1895 by the Italian company Adotti and belonged to a family that had large estates, namely that of Constantin Poenaru.

The sumptuous building was built with the help of architects Ion Mincu, I.D. Berindei and Duiliu Marcu.

The Students' House functioned in the building.

The building is a monument where elements of the late French baroque style and neo-classical French style come together on the exterior, and the late Baroque and Rococo styles are intertwined in the interior.

From the Great Hall of Honor, a T-shaped marble staircase allows, to the east and west, access to the basement. On the left and right of the staircase there are two large mirrors made of Venetian crystal. At the end of it was the Honor Chamber, accessible through a wide door with four sashes. From here one can pass to the other rooms through ornate doors.
