I endeavor through this series of daily articles to inspire appreciation of the historic houses of Romania, a virtually undiscovered, but fascinating chapter of European architectural history and heritage.


If you plan acquiring a historic property in Romania or start a renovation project, I would be delighted to advice you in sourcing 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.

  • Hi,
    Absolutely beautiful, I noticed that it is starting to crumble, just imagine how beautiful this would look fully restored. I agree the A/C is certainly an eyesore.


    • Aircons, as you know, are ubiquitous in all Romanian towns, an important status symbol for the upstart Romanian multitude, defacing the historic landscape and a measure how idiot and arrogant most of the locals in fact are. VM
