The Styrcea Mansion
The Styrcea mansion, from Văleni Commune (Neamţ), has in recent years regained its splendor that it had at the end of the 19th century, thanks to a restoration project initiated and supported by the owner of the ensemble, Michael Edward David of Styrcea. Moreover, the restoration project won the first prize at the 2018 edition of the National Architecture Biennale.
Descendant of an ancient noble family (Stîrce, Stîrcea or Styrcea), Baron Michael Styrcea (British and Romanian citizen) recovered his property in Văleni commune in 2009 (property confiscated by the communists in 1948) and, starting from 2012, started the restoration project of the mansion, according to archive images from the beginning of the 20th century.
IMPORTANT: The location is currently not open to the general public, but it can be admired and photographed from the outside.
