Cantemir brought back by the French

On November 29, we had the pleasure to receive a group of French tourists, some of them from the French National Library, who were coming from a visit in Bukovina and heading to Iasi in order to participate, on the same day, at the launch of the Romanian version of the book Les Cantemir: l'aventure européenne d'une famille princière au XVIIIe siècle, written by the historian Stefan Lemny.

They enjoyed their stay during an hour, when they had the occasion to taste some special local sour cherry brandy, cozonac (homemade walnut cake), and have a grasp of traditional Moldavian atmosphere.
