We celebrate Dragobetele with a new coat placed on the shoulders of the museum: over a hundred hearts decorate the windows of the museum from today until March 8.

Celebrated in the popular calendar on February 24, Dragobete was a handsome young man, personification of passionate love in Romanian mythology, identified with Cupid or Eros, the gods of love in Roman and Greek mythology.
