Casa Cleopatra Trubetzkoi was built in the first part of the 19th century by nobleman Manolache Faca in a neo-Classic French style.
Cleopatra Trubetzkoi (1786?-1878?) was the niece of two Wallachian princes. She lived in Russia being married to Prince Serghei Trubetzkoi who died in 1840. After this tragic event she came back to Bucharest where she bought the present house which became an important meeting place for the intellectuals of the time. The house will be always remembered for hosting the famous composer Franz Liszt who stayed here at the end of 1846, the beginning of 1847.
After her death the house was bought by the rich merchant Nenciu, his initial being visible even today on the main facade of the house. His daughter was married three times and loved the luxurious life more than anything else. It is said that the casing of her carriage had to match her dresses each time.
The edifice ended as property of the Romanian Academy.
