Lonely Planet review for Mihai Eminescu Museum of Literature
Nearby is the Mihai Eminescu Museum of Literature, housed in a distressingly modern white building. The museum recalls the life and loves of Eminescu, Romania's most cherished writer and poet. Though he was married, his great love was Veronica Micle, herself married to a vicar. They outlived their spouses but never married each other due to Eminescu's deteriorating health - he also considered himself too poor to offer Veronica what she deserved (sniff, sniff).
A bust of Veronica faces another of her lover and his favourite linden tree at the end of Junimea Alley in the park.
