Prince Gheorghe Grigore Cantacuzino, also known as the Nabob, was minister of Romania between 1899-1900 and 1904-1907.
On the place of a former hunting house from 18th century, he built in 1911 a charming castle in Neo-Romanian style.
This dream location hosted in 2013 the wedding of the famous Lucian Bute boxing world champion.
The Nabob was so rich that at one point he told the king about his intention of paving the courtyard with golden coins.
The king replied that there was a problem.
If he put the coins with the country coat upward people would have walked on the country standing.
If he put the coins with the king’s face up, people would walk on king’s face.
Then Nabob suggested to put the coins on edge, which would have be done if he had lived for 2 more years.
