The first mosque of Bucharest

A short presentation of the first mosque of Bucharest, built for the 1906 Royal Jubilee Exhibition, dismantled and moved in the actual location, behind grim looking communist era blocks, in the 1950s, when the Communist Heroes Mausoleum was erected in the Carol Park and the stalinist regime did not want around it this religious edifice.

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 advise 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.
