I took a small break over the last three days and now I am back at my pleasant travails :) on the subject of Romanian period houses. The photograph above containing a slightly faded rose in front of a richly decorated Neo-Romanian style arched veranda is very evocative of the historic architecture of Bucharest and how this city has once been, before the communist takeover and the chaotic, low quality building boom of the last decade.

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