DAILY PICTURE: Historic Houses of Romania (29 Aug. ‘09)

Pictoresque end 19th c. terracota roof ornament on a "Little Paris" style house (locally adapted French La Belle Epoque architecture), Icoanei area, Bucharest (Valentin Mandache)

Picturesque end 19th c. terracotta roof ornament of a "Little Paris" style house (locally adapted French La Belle Epoque architecture), Icoanei area, Bucharest. The ornament together with the verdant surrounding park convey the pleasant bucolic provincial fin de siècle atmosphere of how the city was once known. (©Valentin Mandache)

My goal through this daily series of images is to spark the interest of a diverse international audience into the historic houses of Romania, a virtually undiscovered, but fascinating chapter of European architectural heritage.
