Dedicated to the Villa and the Golescu Dendrological Park, a wonderful architectural and landscape ensemble, the leaflet highlights the work of forester Vasile Golescu, the author of important studies about the forest fund in the Muscel area. He is the one who in 1910 conceived the terraced park around the house, a garden park, starting from the natural forest located on the hill and adapting exotic and rare species, brought at the beginning of the last century from abroad. Today, the historic park with an area of over 3 ha is a remarkable example of intact biodiversity.
