George Enescu, who made contemporary Romanian music world famous with his two Romanian Rhapsodies, has a special connection to Sinaia. His talent appealed to Queen Elisabeth, a major art lover, and she put a room in the castle at his disposal in order for him to be able to create undisturbed. The castle launched him in his successful career. Though, long tours followed abroad, Enescu could not forget the beauties of Sinaia and with the money earned on his first tour to America he built a villa here in between 1923 and 1926 and named it Luminis (clearing.) In the following 20 years Sinaia was the stop in between tours to Europe, America and Canada. This was the right place for creation emanating calmness and peacefulness. In 1947, the composer living in Paris, donated the castle to the Romanian state, in order to be used as a resting and creation place for artists. In 1995 the villa became George Enescu memorial house and is taken care by the European Cultural Centre of Sinaia.
