Maria has just finished the Faculty of Medicine at Montpellier but, instead of focusing on her medical endeavors, she ran away with a poor officer from the army -  Anton. 
Oh, how this brings shame to the family!

Without Anton!"

interesting insights about love and different aspects of the neighbourhood. highly recommend to take this lovely walk while visiting Cotroceni and see the blooming magnolias during mid-end of March. however, on 6th quest the guide was a bit misleading as the picture said to turn right on the street while the picture showed a different street with the arrow pointing straight, which led us to waste some time.
