Villa Muntenia was built in 1953 under Russian supervision, in a period in which on lake Snagov shore were built Complexul Astoria , Villa Rustica together with other luxury villas.

The Russian-Communist leaders such as Ana Pauker, Emil Bodnăraș etc. needed to justify somehow why they have occupied the very nice villas (approx. 39) built between 1931-1939 (mainly) by Jewish businessmen (friends ‘Camarilla regală’ of (Carol II of Romania.).

The official story was that “Snagov is a renowned and important resort where the most deserving workers, members of unions deserve to rest”. So, new, modern villas will be built and will be modified the old villas – nationalized – of the capitalist exploiters

In few years, total number of villas on the edge of lake Snagov arise to about 70 vilas.
In fact, up to a total of approx. 165 villas were built on the shore of lake Snagov in the Romanian communist period [1944-1989] in the style of Socialist realism in Romania with the help of few architects like famous Cezar Lăzărescu.

The official and initial usage of all these villas was for short vacations, mainly for cohorts of trade unionists families – called ‘stahanovists’ (Russian workers who exceeded working norms several times – see Stakhanovite movement).

But in time, communist leaders, successively reconsidered the most important social categories to be rewarded by the system: the initial ‘stahanovists’ where soon replaced with their’s direct managers, then after few years, replaced with directors, then with factory managers and in the early of 1980s – with Romanian Nomenklatura from top of ministries.

For more than half a century, Villa Muntenia had a major role among approx. 165 communist administrated villas on the shore of lake Snagov. It was the main supplier of food and beverages for all those who came at Snagov for rest and fun: union workers, communist workers from the elite, tourists, athletes, members of the communist nomenclature, official tables, parties and even several nationally relevant festivals.
So location ended by being renowned for the best prepared food – both for sports events and festivals as well as for the most important official receptions and events (international level – heads of state). It’s most popular dishes: 3-colors ice cream, fish dishes, cold and hot platters.
The staff used was most verified, trusted and good from professional point – from Romania.

So, during communist period (for nearly 40 years) – here in Snagov, due to villas and presence of highest in rank communist and theirs official receptions, was supplied the highest quality of food and best possible services.

Villa Muntenia was also the starting and arrival official line of many national and ”’international competitions”’ for rowing and other nautical sports.

Villa Muntenia was an interesting exception (one of extremely few ones places in whole communist Romania), because here was possible to buy ”’foreign cigarettes and drinks”’. And existed a ”’gambling”’ (mechanical) hall. Such goods and “activities” – being forbidden / prohibited in the rest of country.

The most important decision-makers from communist period, gathered informally here. And in a period when luxury and opulence was not allowed, in seemingly modest but very clean clothes made from best materials, at ”Villa Muntenia” they consumed the best prepared dishes of the best products – raised in special farms of the Romanian Communist Party.
