Iulia Hașdeu castle

Today I will take you to the sanctuary of the castle, first we will enter in the nartex, than you pass into a corridor with mirrors,this corridor that will take us to a mystic world.This corridor has a magic explication, the mirror retains the soul, so we must be careful:).In the middle of the room is a a column that represent the world shaft, this is continue with some metal stairs.

This construction  symbolizes the sacred cup in which was collected the blood of Christ. On top of the stairs is the statue of the Christ made by Raphael Casciani. This statue endured the wars, the earthquakes without any damages even if the rest of the room had many damages during the years. The metallic railing makes the bundle between the lower plane plan, that represent the material plan and the superior plan  that represents the spiritual world. The tower represents the union between spirit and matter, sky and earth.

The bad spirits can’t find their place between the relation of body and soul here. The old civilizations were using metals as an amulet against evil spirits. The grills from inside the castle suggest the purity of the place, the protection offered by God against evil spirits. The light that comes from the windows is pure also as is filter, everything gives u  peace to your soul. The temple has an shrine that is framed by two libraries. In the shrine you can fine an upright piano. The books that are in the two rooms, symbolize the knowledge that remove the dark and the ignorance.

The next room is the office of the scientist.In this room you can see some beautiful furniture. the sofa and the armchair are in Rococo style, made from walnut wood sculpted and stained. The office is made from walnut wood also, on the office you can see two beautiful candlesticks. We can imagine him standing at the office writing some important documents, using  his quill pen, that you can see in the picture bellow. Probably he will invite one of us to take a sit on the beautiful Rococo sofa. The time is passing filtered by the beautiful  wall clock, we can hear the tic tac. In the mirror passing by like a ghost you can see Iulia, she looks happy to see us, eager to have guests.  We look around enjoying the great view of the room.


Now we will go in the next room,this is the obscure room. Here we can see a lot of interesting objects.A table that was used at spiritual sessions, a beautiful sculpted chair with animal motives, that has a secret compartment. Another object that we can see here is the book Sic Cogito, about spiritual experiences,three copies of the first edition, a Swiss sniper from the first part of the XIX century.  We can stay until the dark comes and try to convince Iulia to come and talk with us. We will take a sit and put our hands on table waiting for her. In this room is a little hole in the wall were we can see in the office.

Next is the room dedicated to  Iulia Hașdeu, here we can know her better, the name of the room is the room with calla flowers. In this room you can see the doll of Iulia, the books that Iulia wrote before her tragic death at  18  years ,of tuberculosis. You can see also the work table of Iulia, used when she was studding at Paris, a statue representing her. There is also a beautiful  crystal mirror sustained by a statue in Art Nouveau style. We can admire the beautiful white stove.  We can almost see Iulia and feel her she will give us a smile and maybe tell us thank you for visiting my castle.
