Above is one of the multitude of Art Deco street fence motifs, which can be encountered by any casual visitor throughout Bucharest. It depicts a series of sunbursts or reflector beams, very typical of that style’s decorative panoply.


I endeavour through this series of periodic articles to inspire appreciation of the historic houses of Romania, a virtually undiscovered, but fascinating chapter of European architectural history and heritage.


If you plan acquiring or selling a historic property in Romania or start a renovation project, I would be delighted to advice you in sourcing and transacting the property, specialist research, etc. To discuss your particular plan please see my contact details in the Contact page of this weblog.
