An interesting representation of zodiacal signs, crowned by a faux clock, decorating the backyard wall of a 1920s Neo-Romanian style building in the vicinity of Targoviste town hall, southern Romania.


I endeavor through this daily 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.
