The Conacul Manuc Bey is located in the city of Hincești in the west-central part of the Republic of Moldova. The mansion (entrance 80 UAH), is a French chateau, with a winter garden, watchtowers, and a park. It also includes the house of the judicial officers, the house of the countess, and the castle of the Hunt with the museum of ethnography and natural history of the city. It was built during the second half of the 19th century by Alexander Bernardazzi, the most famous architect in Moldova, and has belonged for several decades to the Marzaian family, the descendant of Manuc-Bey. Emanuel Marzaian, an Armenian businessman and diplomat (known as Manuc Bey), was born in 1769 in the city of Rusciuc (today in Bulgaria). He became a Moldovan diplomat and he is best known for his contributions to wine technology. He worked with the French to introduce a wine production system similar to theirs in Moldova. Local people say that the most extraordinary element of the area is the existence of an underground tunnels network, but no one knows where these tunnels lead.
