DAILY PICTURE: Historic Houses of Romania (28 Aug. ‘09)

Early Neo-Romanian style building, today hosts "Ethnographic Museum", Constanta, Romania (Valentin Mandache)

Early Neo-Romanian style building, dating from the end of the c19th, with distinguishable Byzantine (i.e. doorway columns and arch, wall formed by successive brick-stone strata, etc.) and Ottoman features (i.e. Islamic type ogee of the main window- crowned by a large medallion, saw tooth shape frieze intertwined with small medallions, etc.). The building today hosts "The Ethnographic Museum" and is located in Constanta, an ethnically mixed city of Romanians, Vlachs, Turks, Tatars on the Black Sea shore. (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.


If you are interested in acquiring a historic property in Romania or start a renovation project, I would be delighted to advice you in locating the property, specialist research, planning permissions, restoration project management, etc. To discuss your particular plan please see my contact details in the Contactpage of this weblog.
