Constantin Brancusi – A genius was Born

Here is what the journalists like to call “Breaking News”. You might have noticed that some of our packages on our website contain the city of Targu Jiu. What makes this place so special? Well, next to this city is the birth place of Constantin Brancusi, one of our greatest artists.

  • Brancusi Romania-Infinity Column

And something happened recently. We have recognized him as a valuable asset to our country. February 19th 1876 is the day a genius was born. On December 2nd 2015, the president of Romania has decreed a law stating that February 19th is declared a celebration day, in memory of Constantin Brancusi. He is the genius that we celebrate on this day; with his unique talent he managed to place Romania once again, on the world map.

Brancusi belongs to Romania as he belongs to each and every one of us. His native talent gave masterpieces to the world. Some of us, experts or not, consider them to be out of this world.

When thinking about great artists, the first that come to mind are Van Gogh for the Dutch and Dali for the Spanish. We, as Romanians, have been blessed with Brancusi which is an immense favor from the Universe.

Taking this into consideration, the timing for this gesture is perfect, considering the fact that we should always remember to treasure our heritage.

Every gesture that reminds the world that we, as Romanians are significant in our own personal spiritual development gives our children the chance to be proud of their ancestry.

His most famous work can be admired in the city of Targu Jiu, Gorj County; The Gate of the Kiss, The Endless Column and the Table of Silence. So make sure that you visit these places in your lifetime.
