It’s one of the oldest neighborhoods in Bucharest. At the time it was built, it was at the periphery of the city with a very eclectic aspect: houses made out of cardboard, near houses made of a mixture of clay and straws, and big sumptuous houses.
Today it’s transforming in one of the hippest neighborhoods in Bucharest. It houses one of the oldest parks in the city “Carol I” with its memorial for the unknown soldiers that died in WWII, the first railroad station in the city “Filaret” which today is a coach station, the hidden museum of “Ligia and Pompiliu Macovei” which houses their art collection (which includes a rare collection of Dadaists Romanian painters), Expirat Club – one of the hottest alternative music venues in the city, Xenophon street – a flight of steps, actually, which take us from the park to the Suter Palace.
