It was enough that the Prince of Wales came to Romania once and more precisely in Transylvania with whom he irremediably fell in love. Along with „Mihai Eminescu Trust Foundation” that he owned, the future King of the Great Britain actually participated to the rebirth of the Saxon villages in the area. „Mihai Eminescu Trust Foundation” was involved in the rehabilitation of the water and electricity networks, but also of the architectural heritage from the Transylvanian villages.
