Cezar Petrescu Museum

Busteni, judetul Prahova

Phone0244 321080
AddressTudor Vladimirescu, 1


Cezar Petrescu Museum is found inside a house bought in 1937 from a family of lawyers in the capital. Writer Cezar Petrescu always wanted to find a place to work quietly and managed to fulfill this dream at the age of 45 years. The house from Busteni was the writer's residence for 24 years of life. At his death in 1961, the house was given by the family to the Romanian state, one of the writer’s sisters arriving to be the first curator of this memorial place.

The writer's house suffered only one change, namely the demolition of the two bedrooms downstairs and their transformation, creating arcades and covering the windows, in a collection of exhibits. In the exhbit room we can admire the portraits of Cezar Petrescu's parents and grandparents, an entire collection totaling 57 volumes of prose published during the writer's life, structured thematically, some artwork, photos of the era and a brief evocation of residences that Cezar Petrescu had in Bucharest.

Cezar Petrescu was the first of seven children of Dimitrie and Olga Petrescu, followed by a brother and five sisters. In 1907, the children were left without a father and Olga Petrescu moved from a village near the Roman, in Iasi, a city where he received a house as an inheritance from his parents. Here, Cezar Petrescu attended school and graduated in law, although he never worked as a lawyer.

As a student, he was employed as a journalist, an activity that he loved very much. In 1918, Cezar Petrescu left Iasi to Bucharest. Maintaining his job as a journalist, the writer started at 30 years, the volume of short stories "Scrisorile unui razes", this volume receiving two awards, the Romanian Academy Award and the Writers Society Award. These awards have made Cezar Petrescu to permanently concentrate on writing. In 1927, he published his first novel, "Intunecare", work considered by critic the apogee of his literary activity.

Cezar Petrescu brought something new to the Romanian literature, wanting to write a chronicle of the twentieth-century Romanian society, chronicles that he divided in six cycles. The first round - "The fruit of the earth" - describes the lives of people in the country. The other cycles were "War and Peace", "Exhibitions where you died", "the capital that kills", "The fabulous interior" and "Satyricon".

The literature for children is undoubtedly the most famous of the author, "Fram, the Polar Bear" is the most popular opera of Cezar Petrescu. What is less known about this book is the fact that it was written in only two weeks.

Besides the documentary hall, downstairs, we can see the living room where the writer used to dine and the reception desk. In the hall on the ground floor was arranged a small exhibition of paintings and sculptures donated by artists who were friends and often visited Cezar Petrescu in busteni: three statues donated by the sculptor Oscar Han – Horea Closca and Crisan, canvas bearing the signature of painters as Jiquidi Aurel, Gheorghe Lowendal, Horatiu Dimitriu, Iosif Iser and Anatol Vulpe.

Upstairs, can be viewed the winter office of the writer, the place where he created most of his works. The office chair was specially placed back on the door, with his back at "the temptation", (temptation to leave the work table).

Also upstairs, the writer’s library can be seen, a veranda, a guest office and a press room - a room used for his journalistical activities. There were about 5,000 newspapers in which the writer wrote over time: "Hiena" and "Gandirea" magazine that he founded, or "Dimineata", "Adevarul", "Cuvantul" and "Curentul".

Visting hours: Tuesday - Saturday 9:00 - 17:00.
