Calea Victoriei - An Architectural Insight: The Beautiful Buildings and Symbols of ‘Little Paris’
Bucharest was first mentioned in documents as early as 1459. Along with the passage of time it has gone through a variety of changes, becoming the state capital of the country in 1862 and steadily stabilizing its position as the core of the Romanian mass media, culture and arts. Its eclectic architecture is a mix of historical (neo-classical), interbellum (Bauhaus and Art Deco) bearing Communist and modern influences. In the period between the two World Wars, the city’s elegant architecture and the sophistication of its elite earned Bucharest the nickname of the “Little Paris of the East” (Micul Paris). Upon return a tasty aperitif and a glass of exquisite Romanian wine will be waiting for us at La Bonne Bouche Wine Bistro.
