#DoljLoves. What we do and where we go on Dragobete Week


Dragobete, the celebration of Romanian love, is one of the most important celebrations of our tradition. With deep roots in the past, Dragobetele is taken from the ancient Dacians and then transformed into a protector of young people and patron of love. According to popular legend, Dragobetele was the son of Grandma Dochi, a handsome young man who seduced the women who appeared in his way. However, he has long been the ultimate symbol of today's love.

And, as we know that proof of love is always welcome, it would not hurt to show it to the person you love especially in the Dragobete day. We looked at the calendar of events and found some activities suitable for you two, in the magical week of Romanian love.

Cerasela Iosifescu's obsessions, at the National Theater

"Lora is suffering. Lora is waiting. Live every feeling to the fullest. She fights depression and does not let herself be defeated. She talks about her illness like about a lover, who holds her in his arms too tightly, who suffocates her with too much passion. She is sensual, intelligent, spiritual. She goes out hanging out, shopping, in the park. She often goes to the clinic. And writes. She writes with passion. She writes with the infusion in her hand and seeks tenderness, but she chooses, in a destructive and risky way, human closeness in its most bizarre forms ”(tncms.ro). An incredibly powerful play, an unmissable one woman show by the actress Cerasela Iosifescu, directed by Yiannis Paraskevopoulos, is waiting for you on February 25 at the “Marin Sorescu” National Theater in Craiova, starting at 19:00, in the “I.D.
