Open Doors Day at the French Embassy and Residence in Bucharest

The French Embassy and Residence in Bucharest will open their doors for the wide audience on Saturday, September 19 and Sunday, September 20, for guided visits on the occasion of the 2015 European Days of Patrimony, centred on the topic “The Patrimony of the Twenty-first Century, A Story About the Future.”
The French diplomatic mission invites visitors to discover the complexity of a patrimony that represents an outstanding diplomatic instrument. During these visits, the audience may discover the office of Ms. Ambassador, decorated with beautiful ceiling ornaments, and may admire the valuable art works that decorate the Residence of France, including the painting “Carriage with Hay” by Nicolae Grigorescu, the equestrian statue of Louis XIV, created in 1692 by the famous sculptor Francois Girardon, a master of the art of monumental statues and of decorative arts and a remarkable Gobelins tapestry. Visitors may also admire a secret door hidden in the library, a chandelier that once belonged to aviator Louis Noel or a Pleyel piano manufactured in Paris.
This year, visits will be organized under the sign of French cuisine, introduced in the world patrimony of UNESCO in 2010.
