Art Nouveau gate

This article is on the theme of today’s architectural tour on the Art Nouveau style of Bucharest. The photographs present a rare Art Nouveau style gate found during one of my tours last year. It is in a quite run down state, but still preserves its design details from the 1900s period. I like the gate handle and the decorative lock plate, which in a nutshell convey the air of those times.

  • Fabulous gate handle!! amazing it is still there after all the wear and tear it must have had.


    • indeed, but we also must take into account that Bucharest never really had acid rains like other European capitals, which would have corroded many architectural details, because the communists never managed to industrialise to such an extent the city as in other places in the communist world.
