The President and the Organizing Committee of the 9th International Congress of the International Association on Public and Nonprofit Marketing have the pleasure to invite you to be our guest at the gala dinner at Ştirbey Palace in the city of Buftea on Thursday, 10 June 2010, between 19.30 and 21.30. The dinner will be preceded by a visit to the Stirbey Palace and Estate.
Barbu Ştirbey, ruler of Walachia between July 1849 - October 1853 and between October 1854 - June 1856, inherited Domeniul Ştirbey from the great magistrate Ştirbey, his adoptive father. Having benefited from a modern education, to a great extent due to his studies in Paris, the ruler dedicated himself to his political concerns, having brought only few changes to the property, which he further let to his son, Prince Alexandru Ştirbey (1837-1895).
“Buftea was a well managed property, very close to Bucharest, where Prince Ştirbey had designed long paths through the forest that one could freely ride on, for several kilometers. The Prince, as well as three of his daughters were very good riders and we used to spend a wonderful time together. I loved that forest with its flowers that changed with the season, from the small yellow saffron to the violet vetch flowers that stretched their beautiful bunches all over the place in the summer. If I close my eyes, I can still feel the strong smell of the oak shrubs which used to spread their flavor as the evening came and seemed to scatter their very soul in the bracing hours of the sunset”, confesses Queen Mary about the property of Ştirbey familly from Buftea.
Most important figures of modern Romania or abroad were often received at Domeniul Ştirbey: Ioan Slavici, Vasile Alecsandri, George Enescu, Lascăr Catargiu, Petre Carp, Teodor Rosetti, Mihai Şuţu, Titu Maiorescu, General Ion Argetoianu, Carol Davilla, Gheorghe Gheorghiu Dej, Hruşciov, Jean Marais, Belmondo.
