The first Open Door Days at MAE

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MAE) holds on Saturday the first edition of the Open Doors Day as part of the European Heritage Days 2013. According to the ministry’s press release, the event is to be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., for anyone interested in finding out things about the history of Romania’s diplomacy and the current diplomatic work.
Visitors, accompanied by a guide, will be able to visit several spots of interest, such as the Mihai Eminescu building, belonging to Bucharest’s architectural heritage, with its exquisite White Room and Room with Stained-Glass Windows, where visitors will be invited to donate books in Romanian for Romanian children abroad. Visitors will also visit, for the first time, the central building at MFA Headquarters, with its portrait gallery picturing Romania’s foreign ministers, the Room of Maps, and two areas set aside for special functions, which have been hosting major events of the Romanian diplomacy – the Nicolae Titulescu Room and the Grigore Gafencu Room, both bearing the names of two outstanding personalities who had once headed the diplomatic service of Romania.
Another stop during the visit will be in the office of the Foreign Minister, where visitors can make an idea of the atmosphere in which the head of Romanian diplomacy works.
The courtyard of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs will host a display of artworks signed by graduates of the National Art University in Bucharest. Visitors will be admitted on Saturday, 21 September 2013, beginning 10 a.m. at the main gate, 31, Aleea Alexandru, district 1.
