In the 150 years since Bucharest has stopped burning to the ground, the architecture of the place usually followed the styles en vogue in the European capitals, with a local touch. French Beux Arts style brought in by the alumni of the great Parisian academy, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Neo-Romanian together with communist style, form a mix that’s both frustrating and intriguing.
Starting from the Jewish Quarter where we’ll see the great modernist buildings of Marcel Iancu, we’ll walk along Magheru and Calea Victoriei boulevard and admire the slender lines and beautiful decorative elements of Art Deco and Modernist buildings designed by the architects Arghir Culina, Horia Creanga and finish the tour in Romana Square area, where some the most important Neo Romanian buildings are located.
