In the Soviet period, Constantin Mimi's complex was nationalized and hidden from the world.Only in 2010, during some routine work, workers removed clad facade of the building, discovering a true architectural gem.Then it was decided restore fundamental Castle: each brick was polished as special rehabilitation technologies;they were rediscovered and valorized cellars and underground galleries.
In one of the underground halls was kept a wall with tiles - as it was during the Soviet era - and it's a part of history Castle Mimi. It is curious that the cellar ventilation is through breathing holes built 100 years ago, they were then and are now effective. More than a century Castle MIMI catch its second life.
