Presidential Palace and Ceausescu s House

The Cotroceni Palace, headquarters of The Presidential Administration, is located in an area with a history of over three hundred years. Between 1679 - 1681, to the west of Bucharest, on these lands, on the Cotroceni hill, Prince Serban Cantacuzino founded a monastery, clearing a densely wooded area of the Vlăsiei Woods. Remarkable within this ensemble from the times of Serban Cantacuzino were the "Assumption of the Holy Virgin" church and the magnificent princely palace, built in the Baroque style, specific to the Western Europe of those days. In terms of architecture, the ensemble of Cotroceni has known several key moments: the first is related to the name of the founder Serban Cantacuzino (1678 - 1688).Important historical events took place at Cotroceni. In 1821, Tudor Vladimirescu, the leader of the rebellion, decided to camp here, Cotroceni becoming the center of the revolution.

    Stop At: Cotroceni Palace (Palatul Cotroceni), Bulevard Geniului 1, Bucharest 060116 Romania

    Cotroceni Hill was also the place of residence of many of Romania's rulers for a time until 1883, when King Carol I of Romania received the residences and ordered them demolished with plans to build a much larger edifice in their stead which would serve to house the future heirs to his throne.

    Construction of this new royal palace was commissioned to begin in the year 1893, the project being placed under the direction of French architect Paul Gottereau.[2]

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Ceausescu Mansion, Bulevardul Primaverii No.50 District 1, Bucharest 011975 Romania

    The “Ceauşescu Mansion” was for a quarter of a century (1965-1989) the private residence of Nicolae and Elena Ceauşescu and of their children, Nicu, Zoia, and Valentin.

    Built in the mid-1960s and known at the time as the “Spring Palace”, the mansion was enlarged between 1970 and 1972. The preferred choice for the design of the Ceauşescu family’s residence was Aron Grimberg-Solari (born 1928). The architecture of the palace is complemented by landscaping conceived by the architect Robert Woll (who was also the main furniture designer for the house) and the landscape engineer Teodosiu.

    The spatial qualities and balanced volumes of the Ceaușescu Mansion are striking, as is its luxurious and comfortable interior, the work of the architects Robert Woll and Agrippa Popescu.
