We will illustrate the moment when, on June 26, 1859, Alexandru Ioan Cuza came to Craiova. The reception in his honor was organized at Bibescu Palace, in the public garden, where other esteemed personalities of Craiova were represented: Eugeniu Carada, General Gh. Magheru, Gh. Chiţu.
The age of "Alexandru Ioan Cuza" is marked by the union of the Romanian Principates, as well as the reforms he carried out, which came to be a modern basis for our country's development.
