Architectural dialogues Bucharest

By Mehandjiev-architects, 11.2016

Bucharest is probably the most architecturally interesting Balkan capital. Here successfully coexist very different periods of development – architectural and economical, clearly evident that the country and the city had a more successful history of other major cities in the region. Planned extensively, the city covers more than 2 million people and shows various interesting classic, modern, totalitarian and modern buildings and urban ensembles.

We present a short Sunday stroll through the wide center of Bucharest:
We cannot start anywhere but at Palatul Parlamentului, Palace of Parliament, the second largest building in the world after the Pentagon and a monument to the dictator Ceausescu.
