Cosmic Multicultural Bucharest in the Pandemic (382)
In the Solar-Lunar Square of the Universal Street

The oldest commercial street in Bucharest (created in the 1700s), Lipscani, includes today a small square with two spectacular buildings and the underground ruins of the former “Greek Inn”.

On the southern side, the Dacia-Romania Palace was made in the 1880s in classical German-Austrian Viennese style, and served as insurance company, national bank, royal cultural foundation, conservatory, restaurant, commercial stores and fashion house, and will serve as Bucharest’s art gallery.

On the northern side, the Palace of the Romanian National Bank was made in 1880-1900 in the Parisian style of French Renaissance.

On December 29, 2020
the Crowned Moon above this square
made me think of the beginnings,
when the natural satellite
was the first night lamp that lit up
Bucharest’s universal street.
