Talking to an expert

I recently was talking to an expert on the history of Manuc Bei, but sadly it was only in passing as I was on the way to another meeting and couldn’t sit down and talk to him.

He did tell me some interesting things however, some of which is in this blog already. Some interesting things that were relayed to me:

Manuc Bei was friends with Emperor Alexander I of Russia and the famous Russian poet Alexander Pushkin. Both visited Hincesti and spent time at the Manuc Bei complex. Additionally, Hincesti was known throughout Europe at the time due to its excellent location and Manuc’s influence. From Turkey to Russia to Serbia, Hincesti was a well known city.

Pretty cool, isn’t it?
