The French Embassy in Romania has opened its doors on Saturday and Sunday for the general public. The head of the mission, Francois Saint-Paul, officiated as guide.
The French Ambassador presented the history of the building, “one of the first diplomatic residences in Romania and in the world”, describing both architectural ensemble, built in classical and neoclassical style, and every piece of furniture, especially Louis XV, Louis XVI and Empire, each painting, vase or trinket, most of Sevres.
“The residence outlived all the important events in the history of the Romanian political life and the relations between France and your country,” said Francois Saint-Paul, exemplifying the visit paid by General Charles de Gaulle in 1968 to Bucharest.
To the surprise of visitors, showing a Pleyel piano made in Paris, Francois Saint-Paul sat at the keyboards and sang one of his compositions.
During the visit, the French ambassador in Bucharest led those present to the garden, but also in his office, decorated with exceptional ceiling ornaments, where he presented a series of small souvenirs received from French companies in Romania (Dacia-Renault, BRD Societe Generale, Orange, Airbus, Eurocopter Romania, Groupama, etc).
The Embassy of France in Bucharest has opened its doors on Saturday and Sunday, as part of guided tours during European Heritage Days 2015 focused on ‘Heritage of the 21st century, a story about the future.”
The event is also held to commemorate 123 years since the inauguration of the Residence of France.Francois Saint-Paul
