Daily Picture 20-Oct-09: Stock ‘Little Paris’ Style House

'Little Paris' style house, Bucharest (©Valentin Mandache)

One of the many picturesque examples of 'Little Paris' style (provincially interpreted French 19th century architectural styles) houses in Bucharest. It is located in Opera area and in need of urgent repair. The 'Little Paris' buildings are most often centrally located within the city and constitute excellent potential renovation projects. The French architectural styles were popular in the last two decades of the 19th century until the Great War and define Bucharest's urban identity among its peers in Eastern Europe.
