Plimbare prin oraşul lui Bucur/ A short walk in Bucur's City!

Greetings from Bucharest ... Happy anniversary for those 554 years old of Bucur's City (Bucuresti)!!


Scurtă plimbare de la Ateneu către Calea Victoriei...
Let's have a short walk from Romanian Athenaeum to Victory Avenue...

           But first of all - let's begin with:


De la Ateneu spre Calea Victoriei
(George Enescu Square, Palace of Universitary Foundation Carol I
and Athenaeum on the right side)

Romanian Athenaeum (Ateneul Român - "Clădirea, care este realizată într-o combinație de stil neoclasic cu stil eclectic, a fost construită între 1886 și 1888, după planurile arhitectului francez Albert Galleron. În prezent, adăpostește și sediul Filarmonicii „George Enescu”" sursa Wikipedia. "Recognized as a symbol of Romanian culture, the building has been inscribed in 2007 on the list of the Label of European Heritage sites.") 


Near by at Romanian Athenaeum is George Enescu Square
(from wikipedia  "The Athenaeum was built on a property that had belonged to the Văcărescu family and inaugurated in 1888, although work continued until 1897. A portion of the construction funds was raised by public subscription in a 28-year long effort, of which the slogan is still remembered today: "Donate one leu for the Ateneu!/ "Give a penny for the Athenaeum").

George Enescu Square / preparations for a concert...

Right across of Royal Palace and near by Enescu Square is Fundaţiunea Universitară Carol I builded between 1891-1895 and designed by french architecte Paul Gottereau.

from Wikipedia "The present Central University Library was founded in 1895 as the Carol I Library of the University Foundation. It was built on land bought by King Carol I of Romania for the "Carol I University Foundation" (Fundația Universitară Carol I) and designed by French architect Paul Gottereau. The building was completed in 1893 and opened on 14 March 1895."



The equestrian statue of Carol I of Romania






 

 from Wikipedia "Casa Golescu a fost ridicată între anii 1812 și 1815 în acest loc, în stil neoclasic, cu un etaj și avea 25 de odăi, un număr impresionant pentru o locuință în Bucureștii acelei epoci. În 1837, casa somptuoasă a stolnicului Dinicu Golescu devine Curtea Domnească a lui Alexandru Ghica Vodă. Din 1859 până în 1866 aici a locuit domnitorul Principatelor Unite, Alexandru Ioan Cuza. Din 10 mai 1866 casa devine locuința domnitorului Carol I.
 După incendiul din 1926 care a distrus corpul central, devine necesară înlocuirea ei. În 1935–1936 vechea casă este dărâmată.
Palatul a fost construit după planurile arhitectului Nicolae Nenciulescu și terminat în anul 1937. Construcția este în formă de U, cu o curte interioară. Fațada are două intrări: intrarea din stânga era folosită de rege și oaspeții săi iar cea din dreapta era destinată demnitarilor.
La stânga, intrarea conduce într-un hol octogonal, decorat în stil neo-bizantin de unde urcă scara invitaților iar la dreapta se intră în holul oficial, un mare hol pătrat, de unde urcă scara voievozilor spre fosta sală a tronului.
În timpul Revoluției din 1989, palatul a fost incendiat."

 Today, the former Royal palace houses the Romanian National Art Museum







Revolution Square ("is a square in central Bucharest, on Calea Victoriei. Known as Piața Palatului (Palace Square) until 1989, it was later renamed after the 1989 Romanian Revolution.)






At the south of the Revolution Square - you can see near by Royal Palace: the small, but beautiful, Kretzulescu Church.

            The small red-brick Orthodox church " was commissioned in 1720–1722 by the boyar Iordache Crețulescu and his wife Safta, a daughter of Prince of Wallachia  Constantin Brâncoveanu." (read more on wikipedia)


Biserica Kretzulescu






Next to the Royal Palace it is situated the concave-roof structure of Royal Palace Great Concert Hall who was built in 1960. The massive auditorium it hosts from various conferences and events, including to some of the Enescu Festival concerts that are held in these days till 27 september.




It is said that it is "the oldest and arguably, most charming street. Built in 1692 to link the Old Princely Court to Mogosoaia Palace, it was initially paved with oak beams. The street became Calea Victoriei in 1878, after the Romanian War of Independence victory. Between the two world wars, Calea Victoriei developed into one of the most fashionable streets in the city."











Military Club / Palatul Cercului Militar



 The Military Club is "a neoclassical masterpiece, designed by Romanian architect Dimitrie Maimaroiu, was built in 1912 to serve the social, cultural and educational needs of the Romanian army. Banquets and official events are still hosted in the ballrooms, while the upstairs area is reserved for the army's library, as well as offices and classrooms for officer instruction. The main part of the building is off-limits to civilians, but the sumptuous restaurant and summer terrace is open to the public."



Fântăna Sărindar / Sărindar Fountain... just in front of the Military Club / Palatul Cercului Militar 
("Palatul Cercului Militar Național a fost ridicat pe locul fostei Mănăstiri Sărindar, pe un teren mlăștinos. (...)
Lucrările pentru construcția Palatului Cercului Militar Național au început în anul 1911, deși terenul unde urma să se ridice edificiul fusese cedat de Ministerul Domeniilor încă din 1898.")



... it was such a lovely walk, isn't?
