My goal through this daily series of images is to spark the interest of a diverse international audience into the historic houses of Romania, a virtually undiscovered, but fascinating chapter of European architectural heritage.


If you are interested in acquiring a historic property in Romania or start a renovation project, I would be delighted to advice you in locating the property, specialist research, planning permissions, restoration project management, etc. To discuss your particular plan please see my contact details in the Contact page of this weblog.

One thought on “Neoromanian – Art Nouveau Patterns

  • You’re doing a great job documenting these buildings!

    It would be a terrible loss if they took these amazing houses down or just let them slowly fall in to pieces!

    …at least not before I’ve had the pleasure to go there ; )
