Lacul Morii

, , Posted by on

Mill Lake is one of the largest lakes in Bucharest, a beautiful place that offers beautiful and lush landscapes for those who are looking for a serene destination where they can relax and enjoy a slower pace of life. With an area of 246 ha and located at 6 km from Bucharest’s center, this blue attraction is one of the most appreciated destinations for locals or tourists with a passion for photography and unique scenery.

Mill Lake is actually an accumulation lake created in 1986 on Dambovita River after closing the Ciurel Dam, a dam that was built for protecting Bucharest from floods. The lake is located between the Crangasi neighborhood, Giulest neighborhood and Chiajna village. Mill Lake also allowed the construction of a recreational area in Crangasi neighborhood and ensures a rate of clean leakage on Dambovita within the Capital’s limits.

The Lake resulted when the 15 meters tall Ciurel Dam was built which has a central concrete body reinforced with earth dams that measure 7 km. It truly is a remarkable man made construction that generated one of the most stunning artificial lakes in the country. In the northern side of the lake there is one of its most interesting treasures, a 32.723 m² peninsula called “Mill Lake Island” which is connected to the lake’s shore by a narrow trail of land.  To enhance its beauty, in 2011 a few volunteers planted 475 trees here. Due to its unique and exotic beauty, the Mill Lake Island hosted a few very important music concerts, festivals, water sports and shows. For instance, the “Coke Live” music festival took place here.

Mainly, the lake is used as a recreational destination and very often it offers cultural shows, Air-Show exhibitions, scooter, boat and sailboats competitions. Windsurf is another increasingly popular sports on Mill Lake. Actually, here there are courses for water sky, windsurf, sky jet and other modern water sports.

There are even a few projects that plan to turn Mill Lake into a travel destination, a residential complex, a business and a commercial center. To ease the access to this fantastic attraction there is even a project of building a highway tunnel that would connect Bucharest’s center with Mill Lake and A1 highway.

The lake was built by the communists on a ground that used to be occupied by the Saint Nicolas Church and its cemetery. These two were covered by concrete and initially the architects wanted to build in the center of the lake shops, promenades and benches. But these plans were seized in ’89 and in their place Mill Lake resulted. Now this is the favorite destination for photographers, locals or tourists who are looking for a green alternative to the grayish city décor.

When you are in the mood of discovering a beautiful gem in Bucharest do not hesitate to take a short trip to Mill Lake where you can admire one of the largest lakes in the city, stunning scenery and even try out some thrilling water sports.

Tepes Castle in Bucharest

, Posted by on

If you ever find yourself simply walking through Carol Park and you have enough time on your hands to discover a less common tourist attraction, with a medieval appearance and gorgeously built out of red bricks, then be prepared to be surprised. Right in the center of the park there is the Water Tower that was built by the architects Stefan Burcus and V. Stephanescu in 1906, to commemorate 40 years from the coronation of Carol I, a moment when the Romanian authorities decided to organize the famous Romanian General Exhibition.

The Tepes Castle had a functional and utilitarian purpose. It was supposed to host a water reservoir, but it never fulfilled its purpose and it remained in history as the building that copied the architecture of the original Tepes Palace from Poenari, Arges County. Those who are interested in visiting this tourist attraction, it can be found on Candiano Popescu Street no. 6, Bucharest.

The Catle’s tower, measuring about 20 meters high and 8 meters in diameter, used to host a huge cylindrical iron basin with a capacity of 200 cubic meters and a 6 meters diameter. This was able to fill the inside of the tower entirely, leaving room only for a narrow spiraled staircase, which used to climb almost to the top of the building. The basin was constructed in the workshops of Oscar Maller and was assembled in the Palace’s interior.

From the Castle’s tower, from a special platform, one could admire Carol Park and Bucharest’s panorama. A powerful counterfort, completed by a wooden porch, holds the tower from crashing down, and in the right side there is a castellated stone wall, finished in the corner with another tower of smaller sizes.

Sadly, short after Queen Elizabeth opened the Exhibition, accompanied by the notes of 100 thumpers and the gun shots of the Calafat Company, the water basin became unused and it remained this way until this day.

After the relocation of the Unknown Soldier at Marasesti and the inauguration on 30 December 1963, the mausoleum nearby (built on the site of the former National Military Museum), Tepes Castle continued to be used by soldiers who provided security for Carol Park.

In 2010, the Castle was included in the list of national historical monuments which meant respecting a set of specific rules, applicable to those buildings which were part of the National Patrimony.

Unfortunately, the access at the inside of the castle is permitted only twice a year, due to security reasons. The building hasn’t been repaired or restored since 1990. The only days when the Castle can be visited are National Heroes Day and Army Day (25th of October). Still, every visit is one that you will surely remember. Besides the unique architectural style, you will also enjoy a gorgeous view of Carol Park and you will also get to visit the Mausoleum and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

The Old Princely Court

, , Posted by on

The Old Princely Court was the first Royal Court built in Bucharest. Initially, it included a Palace, a church, spaces meant for servants and the royal gardens. We know only a few details about the Court’s founder, but according to historical researchers who have studied the history of Bucharest, it was built by Mircea cel Batran. Today, the Old Princely Court is an outdoor museum which hosts quite often cultural events, festivals and medieval art fairs.

The first Royal building in Bucharest, the Old Princely Court was constructed by Mircea cel Batran between the end of the XIV century and the beginning of the XV century. It is one of the most important historical sites from the Capital’s Old Town. In 1972 it was turned into a museum that has the same name and which is an original representation of the vestiges of the royal residences from the XVI-XIX centuries. Even now you can still see the foundations of the XIV century city and the stone walls of Bucurestilor city.

The Old Princely Court was the place where for a couple hundred years the nobles used to gather, where the history of a country that was mostly under the Ottoman’s threat was written. The Old Court was also the place where the first Romanian literature was born, where the national spirit regained its originality through art and culture.

According to historians, the Old Princely Court was located on a very tall hill and it was surrounded to the South by the very high bank of the Dambovita River and to the other cardinal points by very strong walls. The access into the Old Court was possible through two opposite gates.

The first gate which was located at the intersection of Smardan and Halelor Street had several names like the Upper Gate, The German Tower, the Royal Bell, and much later after the stone tower was ruined, the Red Tower. The second gate, the Lower Gate, was located in the place where Mosilor Street begins.

In the XV century, Vlad Tepes, the ruller of the Romanian Country, consolidated the city and turned it into his royal residence, an alternative to the one he already had in Targoviste.

The old Princely Court suffered over the years numerous restorations works, starting with second half of the XIV century, from Basarab cel Tanar and until Mircea Ciobanul, Matei Basarab and Constantin Brancoveanu.

After the fire from 1718 which destroyed almost the entire Bucharest and after the earthquake in 1738, the Old Princely Court was closed.

Nowadays, the Old Court is just a cluster of ruins – a few ancient Turkish baths and old walls that mark the limits of the former royal palace. The ruins of the Old Princely Court become a protected archaeological site, turned into a museum named “Old Princely Court Museum”. It is a very interesting and fascinating tourist attraction in Bucharest that offers a rich and unique cultural experience.

Romanian Athenaeum

Posted by on

The Athenaeum is the symbol-building for the entire Romanian Culture. Built in the heart of Bucharest 120 years ago, between 1886 and 1888, it became the architectural and spiritual landmark not just for a city, for a capital, but also for an entire nation.

Here is where the greatest Romanian personalities and scientists have lectured, where famous artists held their concerts, where true musical masterpieces where launched, where ample exhibitions took place, where kings, queens, politicians and foreign guests took part at important national and international events. Basically, the Romanian Athenaeum hosted some of the most significant historical moments that will forever be remembered in history.

Few know that the Romanian Athenaeum was built with the money raised from public donations, after organizing a national lottery with 500,000 tickets priced at 1 leu. The founder of the Society Romanian Athenaeum, Constantin Esarcu, came up with a funny, but simple slogan “Give one leu for the Athenaeum!” The idea of this project has surprisingly turned into a true lesson of solidarity.

The Romanian Athenaeum was designed by the French architect Albert Galleron after the scientific researches and indications of Alexandru Odobescu, and it was also reviewed and completed by a large team of Romanian specialists like Ion Mincu, Al.Orascu, Grigore Cerkez, Ion Socolescu and Cucu Starostescu. The construction of this important cultural institution wasn’t possible just due to the public donations, but also due to the existing foundations of the Diocese Garden that were supposed to be used for building a circus. Inspired by the ancient Greek temples the building amazes right from the first moment with a historical colonnade which sustains a triangular gable.

At the ground floor, the impressive lobby made from marble includes the 12 Doric columns that hold the concert hall. Four monumental baroque spiraled staircases made of Carrara marble, with balconies at the intermediary floor, make the connection with the hall and the annexed rooms (offices, rehearsal rooms and changing rooms). Organized as the old Greco-Roman amphitheaters, the 1,000 sitting places offer a perfect view from any angle and an impeccable audition. The flawless sound propagation is a consequence of the huge dome which absorbs the instrumental and vocal backgrounds from the podium, and distributes it through reverberations towards the auditors.

The exceptional acoustics of the sound cavity featured by the Romanian Athenaeum has placed the hall among the best buildings of this kind not only from Europe, but from the entire world. Some of the unique things that have turned the Romanian Athenaeum into a complex and distinctive architectural attraction are the Fresca which evokes the history of the Romanian people in 25 episodes, made for five years by the painter Costin Petrescu, the pipe organ installed in 1939, numerous technical improvements like the introduction of air conditioning, ceiling restoration, modern seats, boxes redistribution and the widening of scenes. For over 50 years, the Romanian Athenaeum has become the headquarters for the “George Enescu” Philarmonics, and starting with 1958 the place where all the “George Enescu” International Festivals are hosted.

House Melik

Posted by on

The Museum Theodor Pallady, hosted by House Melik, is one of the oldest buildings in Bucharest, which hides behind its walls a rich and troubled history. Even though it was abandoned in 1857 and damaged by a fire in 1913, it still impresses its visitors with an amazing architecture and unique charm.

Among the narrow streets and the rich architectural stories next to the Armeneasca, on Spatarului Street no.22, in a lush garden with yellow, white and red flowers there is hidden a discrete and graceful old house that is recognized by many specialists as one of the oldest constructions in Romania’s Capital.

As opposed to many other historical monuments in Bucharest, House Melik has been renovated, once in 1970 and most recently in 2009. Still, the building preserves the distinctive style of the traditional Romanian architecture through details such as the upstairs porch closed with window glass, the wooden interior staircase and the wide eaves roof.

Built in the second half of the XVIII century, the house probably belonged to an important personality from the Romanian Country, and after his death the property was bought by Kevork Nazaretoglu, a rich Armenian merchant. He decided to renovate the house in 1822, by making small changes at its interior, but keeping the main walls untouched. His granddaughter married Jacob Melik who has studied architecture in Paris. When they decided to move into the house, this was in ruins. He decided to fix it and restore its original style.

Currently, the Museum Theodor Pallady includes the collection of the couple Serafina and Gheorghe Raut, which features a few canvases signed by Theodor Pallady, as well as an important selection of over 800 drawings and engravings of the famous Romanian painters, works that are representative for his Parisian period. These are exhibited periodically in thematic series.

Along Pallady’s works, the collection of the Raut couple includes European painting from the XVI-XIX centuries( French works signed by Lubin Baugin, Edmond Aman Jean, Carolus Duran; Dutch by Jan van de Cappelle; English, Spanish and Romanian), ancient Greco-Roman sculptures, Egyptian, Indian, but also French and Italian Renaissance sculptures, textiles, furniture pieces, oriental ceramics and other decorative art objects. Through its diversity, the collection completes the perspective on the Romanian and European art history from the end of the XIX century and the beginning of the XX century.

Many people walk daily in front of it. Most do not even notice its beauty, preoccupied only by their city routine. Others just take a quick look at its majestic outside. House Melik is one of the oldest buildings in Bucharest and it still keeps its original architecture. The house with such an exotic name- Melik- is the location of the Theodor Pallady Museum, a place really valuable that few have the chance of exploring. Right from the entrance, the house invites anyone to admire its wonderful and unique exhibits. The house’s architecture, its richly artful interior, the valuable paintings, the refined furnishing and the decorative objects manage to impress. There is no need for a guide if you know how to savor art peacefully, listen to the house’s interior pulse and absorb its historical significance.

Dimitrie Gusti Village Museum

Posted by on

On the shore of Herastrau lake, right in the heart of Romanian’s Capital, visitors have the joy of discovering a real village, one with monuments and artifacts from the XVII century, unique constructions originating from the most important ethnographic areas that had the chance to reborn within the Dimitrie Gusti National Museum.

Creating the Village Museum wasn’t a sudden decision. It was the result of an intensive and sustained research work, both theoretic and practical, to numerous museum experiments that were coordinated for more than a decade by the professor Dimitrie Gusti, the founder of Bucharest’s Sociological School. Basing the project on this extensive work and on the financial support of the Royal Foundation “Prince Carol”, in only two months the Village Museum was built. In this very short period, the specialist and student teams organized and coordinated by Dimitrie Gusti and H.H. Stahl, bought from the researched villages peasants’ constructions such as houses, churches, technical installations, and interior objects like furniture, ceramics, textiles and tools, considered as being representatives for their places of origins.

 The official opening of the National Village Museum took place on the 20th of May 1936 in the presence of King Carol II, and it was opened to the public a week later, on the 17th of May 1936. Back then, the museum included about 4.5 hectares. On this land one could visit 33 authentic households, one church, fountains and a swing. The design was completed by the playwrighter and stage designer V.I. Popa.

If you want to experience the unique village life, the authentic reality of the Romanian peasant then the National Village Museum is a place that you simply cannot miss. The charm of the scenery, the extraordinary architecture, the craftsmanship of the objects exhibited and the cultural richness are just a few of the things that intrigue us when we are visiting this institution.

The research campaigns and the acquisitions made within the last years have contributed to the growth of the patrimony that is exhibited outside and of the current collections. At the moment, the permanent exhibition includes 123 different households, over 363 monuments, and the mobile patrimony counts about 50,000 objects. One of the greatest advantages of the National Village Museum is its diversity. Among the monuments recently transferred in the museum, at the beginning of 2003, there is the Timiseni Church from Gorj, a monument that has a special value for the old religious rural architecture and for the execution of the paintings. Besides the patrimony displayed outside, the museum also holds a rich documentary database with an invaluable historical and ethnographic importance. This database is compiled from collections of manuscripts, studies, sketches, drawings, surveys, drawings, glass clichés, films, color and black and white negatives and photographs.

All visitors have access to all these traditional Romanian treasures and at the same time enjoy the unique chance of experiencing a part of the fascinating life of the peasant and the authentic village that represents the core origins of Romanian people, their wonderful culture and charming history.
