The “Calea Victoriei” Foundation invites you to a stroll through Bucharest’s Old City-centre, to find out the story of Lipscani Street, where medieval merchants once sold their wares, or tales featuring princes and princesses associated to the Old Princely Court. Today’s Bucharest still preserves some remains of the Old Princely Court complex – the Princely Palace and Church (the Church of the Annunciation), the wine-cellar, homes and gardens.
We are invited to find the tales behind other historical monuments and delightful places: Manuc’s Inn, “Sfantul Dumitru de Juramant” Church, the “Stavropoleos” Monastery, the Post-office Palace (now, the National History Museum), the “Caru cu Bere” Palace, the “CEC” Palace, the National Bank of Romania (BNR) Palace, the National Library Palace, “Hanul cu Tei” or the Vilacrosse Pass.
The old city centre is finally being given a make-over, after being left in a decrepit state for over 20 years. Conservation, modernization and restoration works are a first step towards breathing new life into Bucharest’s history-laden old city centre and bringing it on a par with other European capitals.
When: Saturday, August 6, 6pm
Where [Meeting-place]: In front of the BNR Palace
