At an auction in 1996, the Mircea Dinescu Poetry foundation acquired the administration building of a former agricultural port on the Danube. That’s how that deserted place started being transformed into the Cetate Cultural Port, where residence programmes for writers and artists, translation workshops, film-makers’ conventions and pottery camps brought together people from all over Europe and somehow managed to succeed each other most naturally, without a trace of panic or institutional pressure. The very remoteness of the place is beneficial both for artists in search creative solitude and for those who, having gathered at the river, feel inclined to concentrate on the topics they share.
This is an AMAZING place, one of the most bike friendly sites where you can camp (free of charge!) or you can rent a room. Either way, don't miss the delicious traditional meals the ladies from the kitchen prepare for the hungry visitors.
The owner is also a famous wine producer, so you will be able to enjoy the flavors of the local wine.
