“In the cultural hearth there was disco, and there were films” remembers one of the residents of Slon, a mountain village in Prahova county. In Câmpina, a small town in the same county, the Youth Cultural House opened in 1982; it now hosts a variety of social and cultural activities, including free amateur theatre shows, sports clubs, art-based nursery schools, media offices, dance groups, educational classes and an English language library. Prior to 1989, in communist times, the House of Culture or Cultural Hearth was a key institution for state-led cultural activities.„
