The Paharnicului House in Piatra-Neamț is a building with massive walls, on one level, built in the archaic style of inns with an interior courtyard of the 19th century, and it still harbors mysteries not clarified even today by German specialists or administrators.
The Paharnicului House is also known as Paharnicului Inn, named after the rank of the owner, D.C. Gheorghiadis, who, according to the Official Gazette of the Principalities of Moldavia from 1853, was promoted sword keeper, and later steward, and cup-bearer. These were old, old houses, with a ground floor and a story, built after the old fashion, with balconies and cellars, with a spacious fence, serving more as storehouses for products. The ground floor features a portico of massive pillars and flat masonry arches, as does the fully vaulted cellar. Upstairs we find the large and solid porch, supported by pillars. The stone and masonry foundation is impressive in thickness. The interior space underwent further subdivisions and restorations, which correspond to the current commercial purpose", says the monographist Mihail Apavalaoaie, in a study published in 2005.
