And here are some complete boulevard revitalizations. This is one of the main ones, Uniri Bouleveard, in the heart of Bucharest.

Bucharest would be so beautiful if all the buildings were renovated to this quality. Sadly I still see orange, greens and PVC.

Wut? What is that mean? Literally. Is that even English? I think you're drunk. Come back when you're sober.

He just wrote that this is more a devastation as the original building was modernist and current building is similar to "gypsy villas"* you can find all over the Europe. Typically communist type modernist house with stylish-like additions mostly neo-classical'ish same as the style of hardshoulder sales of gypsum garden dwarf figures...

I understood him, you didn't. Rather than throwing ad-personam comment about being sober while posting post you should simply apply the rule to yourself kid...

*it is called "gypsy style" as it is being used by Gypsy/Roma communities. Here is the example:

I think it looks good either way. There are far more important modernist buildings in Bucharest that aren't even being restored, like the ARO Building.

Sure, what I see here is high-quality renovation with restoration of art-deco elements. Way to go, Bucharest!

It's not art deco ornament, it 's imitation of elcectic one - very cheap though.

No offense but I treat this post as a hog-wash and as a such "no comment".

This post is just as ridiculous as the other one. There's no comparison.


The pic in your post is a new building, a private home. The other is a proper restoration of 1930's structure. You're both weirdo nerds who get off on demeaning others. Anytime Romania comes up anywhere people like you unleash with the insults. Gypsy this gypsy that, just to be crude and rude. It's too bad that you can't be decent people.
