Autumn is around the corner in Bucharest

It seems that the autumn is not far away from Bucharest now, as I was able to discern during the architectural history and photography tour yesterday in Calea Calarasi area. Bellow is a sample of images, which I hope would convey that wonderful feeling of autumnal peace to you, dear readers. Calea Calarasi, although is within walking distance from the centre of Bucharest, the sixth largest city of the European Union, it retains in many aspects a semi-rural character, typical of this part of south east Europe, which makes it delightfully picturesque, as is testified by the bucolic scenes, announcing the harvest season, presented in these photographs.

I endeavour through this series of periodic 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 or selling a historic property in Romania or start a renovation project, I would be delighted to advice you in sourcing and transacting the property, specialist research, etc. To discuss your particular plan please see my contact details in the Contactpage of this weblog.
