2/40.- Bucharest, The Little Paris


For the people initiated in French architecture this could only be in France, or maybe Belgium. Yet it's downtown Bucharest, somewhere near the Amzei Church & Market.

From the 1870s until the late 1920s the city began its most beautiful metamorphosis from a giant village with muddy streets to Eastern Europe's most attractive destination, and the world renowned reputation of being 'The Little Paris'.

Entire neighborhoods were designed by French architects or Romanian architects tributary to the French school and some results are still here with us today, this house being one of them. For the more attentive observer, some balconies have statues of babies.
