Parfumului (Perfume's) Street by Classic Bucharest, on Flickr










Sfântu Ștefan Church (1768) and Sfântu Ștefan Street by Classic Bucharest, on Flickr












A photo with Popa Soare Street, from Popa Soare neighborhood.
The Mântuleasa and Popa Soare neighborhoods not only that were used as themes or locations in Eliade's short stories, but where the very source of inspiration for his interest in religions as cultural phenomena. Mircea Eliade, world's greatest historian and philosopher of religions, grew as a teenager in Bucharest and attended a school in Mântuleasa Neighborhood, which is next to Popa Soare Neighborhood, both in the eastern limit of pre-war Bucharest. The strange names of these two neighborhoods, Mântuleasa which seems related to the verb a mântui ("to save", in religious sense mostly) and Popa Soare, which translates like Sun Priest, must have been what ignited young Eliade's interest and later make him travel around the world, documenting and trying to explain the psychological and social causes of religions.
The origin of the names of these two neighborhoods, nevertheless, is more prosaic. Mântuleasa was just an 18th century woman who founded the church later called Mântuleasa. She was the wife of a commerciant called Manta and her name means "of Manta". Soare was the family name of the first priest of Popa Soare Church. Both neighborhoods appeared around the churches and took the name from them.

I think I like Bucharest best in the evening when the sun is fast fading and the street lights come on. Very resonant.

Căldărarilor (Boiler makers') Street - this short street connects Anton Square (the heart of the oldest part of Bucharest) with Dâmbovița River. As Dâmbovița was the main source of water for the city (up to 19th century was clean and drinkable), by here were passing the people going to make their supply so the industry of boiler making developed along this street.

Constantin Mille (formerly Sărindar) Street

"Journals Street"

One of the shortest streets of Bucharest, its name comes from an old monastery built in 17th century and demolished in 1896. In its place, the Sărindar Fountain was built, that can be seen to these days.
In late 19th - early 20th century, it was a lively street with journalists and photographers who quickly ran to newsrooms, with nerve businessmen to stop a defamatory article. The two competing media groups, Adevărul ("The Truth", named after the homonimous newspaper) and Universul were having their headquarters on Sărindar and Brezoianu, in the point where these two streets intersect. The peak of this journalistic activities was reached in the 1920s. The Dimineața newspaper was printing 100,000 copies daily during this time.

Sărindar was also the street where the movie theatres from the parallel Elisabeta Boulevard ("The Romanian Hollywood") where having their exiting doors. Today, most of these movie theaters are closed because of lack of customers. They represent an unique cultural heritage. The oldest movie theatre of Bucharest, from 1884 is here and the other are also close to 100 years old.

Old Court Church
, built in 1554, the oldest extand building in city. It served as chapel for the Princely Palace that existed here since 1459 and was extended or modified many times, before being abandoned in early 19th century with the movement of the Princely Palace in present Revolution Square.
In 15th century, Vlad Țepeș turned the village of Bucharest into a town with a princely residence, in order to control and protect the Danube frontier and prevent the attacks of Turks. The previous capitals where in the northern part of the principality, leaving the south exposed. Bucharest will steadily grow and surpass in size the other cities of Wallachia, but only from 1659 will become capital.

Bucharest's historic neighbourhoods are really charming and have a unique central-southern-eastern European flair. This is why I felt all the sicker when I found out this:

Please tell me that this criminal practice of destroying the city's heritage has already stopped...

Thank you! Not repeating myself is a main concern when taking / selecting photos.

Unfortunately, it didn't stop but it diminished. Romanians, especially those from Southern Romania, including Bucharest, are still barbarian, many if not most hate the old buildings, want them erased and replaced with new, hygienical, glass-facaded buildings. Fortunately, at this year local election, there is an independent candidate (Nicușor Dan) for the general mayor, that seems to have serious chances and his main agenda is the salvation of Bucharest's heritage, though most Bucharesters would vote him because they hate the main parties.






One from the previous days:

I see. Don't get me wrong, my intention definitely wasn't to say that Romanians are barbarians. Destroying old architecture and replacing it with bland, generic modern buildings clearly isn't a uniquely Romanian problem, it exists in many cities around the world, in Moscow, but also in New York.

Good to hear that the destruction of old Bucharest is being gradually stopped. And good luck to Nicușor Dan and any other candidate that will promote sustainable, well-planned growth and making the city more human-friendly

PS More renovations of historic architecture (like this seen on the photos you reposted to this page) and improvement of public spaces will make your city if not little Paris, then little Madrid
