The "Mihail Sadoveanu" memorial house
DJ155C, Neamț 617502, Romania
The "Mihail Sadoveanu" memorial house, located near the Vovidenia Hermitage and near the Neamț Monastery, was established in 1964, in the bishop's house built in 1937 for Metropolitan Visarion Puiu. Later, the building ends up under the administration of the Mitropoly, which makes it available to Sadoveanu to serve as his creative and recreational home.
Here the writer spent his summers and holidays with his family members, friends and cultural and political personalities of the time. Among those who stayed at Vovidenia as guests of the writer are Maria Tănase, Emil Bodnăraș and Gheorghe Gheorghiu-Dej (former communist ruler).
Today you can see in the museum numerous objects that belonged to the writer (clothing, hunting weapons, fishing tools, the entire Sadovenian work, which also includes the princeps editions). The museum is currently under the care of the inhabitants of the hermitage.
