Gabroveni Inn reopens lots of outdoor events in store

Bucharest celebrates 555 years since its first documentary mention with the reopening of the Gabroveni Inn, shows, fairs and exhibitions, the Municipality announced in a release quoted by Agerpres.
The events will start on Thursday with the opening of the Gabroveni Inn, a historic monument on the busy street of Lipscani in the city center; having undergone reinforcement and refurbishment works, it will become the new cultural center of the capital city.
Bucharesters are invited to attend outdoor parties, exhibitions, fairs, concerts, pop, folk and alternative music shows, theater performances, vintage clothing parades, the famous ‘avenue battle of flowers’, or 3D screenings of the last generation.
A grandiose show is scheduled next Saturday in the Constitution Square, where the ‘Romanian Music Revolution’ will see different generations of artists taking the scene to perform successful songs released decades ago or hits of the day.
Also on Saturday the façade of the Palace of Parliament will turn into a giant screen for the projection of the ‘iMapp Bucharest 555’ multimedia show, a European one-off. Although the facade of the palace has been used before for projections, it’s the first time that it supports a video-mapping project involving a complex 3D image that animates the building surface by shapes and colors with magical effects, using each architectural element to personalize and reinterpret the building’s gigantic surface of approximately 20,000 square meters.
The Cismigiu Park will host the ‘Bucharest Fair’ and outdoor performances by members of the national minorities (Armenian, Hungarian, Greek, Italian, Roma, Turkish-Muslim, German, Hebrew) and beloved artists.
Next Friday the University Square will be the site of a concert of alternative music given by the most popular Romanian troupes of the moment. A contemporary art installation will also be unveiled there.
For three days in a row, the intersection of Eugen Carada and Lipscani Street will turn into an outdoor ring dance; Latino rhythms will heat the atmosphere and professional dancers will give amateurs an insight into the tricks of the trade.
The ‘Brancovan Palaces’ Cultural Center in Mogosoaia joins into the ‘Bucharest Days’ celebration, inviting children from Bucharest schools and foster centres to workshops offered by plastic artists. A Formula 1 mini-circuit for children features prizes and interactive games with professional actors as partners. The palace court will serve as venue for theater shows and outdoor concerts.
This year at the third edition, the ‘Caragiale’s Bucharest’ festival ends this Sunday; it has been running since June 28 under the banner of the 555th celebration of the city’s documentary mention.
Outdoor theater events taking place under the umbrella of the anniversary total 32 titles and 139 performances in sceneries that have delighted audiences over time, offered by famous actors, acrobats, animal trainers, balancers and illusionists.
