Interwar Bucharest in a vintage car

Until the second half of the 19th century, Bucharest was described by foreign travelers as a strange mixture of Oriental and West European influences and at that time only carriages entered the city. In less than a century, the city became the state capital and it flourished as one of the most beautiful Southeast European cites. The first decades of the 20th century represent the Golden age of Bucharest, when it was known as “Little Paris”. The first cars to roam around its gas illumined streets were the Ford T models. Their owners were extravagant people, boyars educated in Paris, Vienna or Berlin.

These high class people entered in contact with the new inventions, as the car, in the main capitals of Europe. Important to mention is that in Bucharest were two famous car repairing ateliers: Atelier Leonida and Atelier Ciclop.

Unfortunately, the city lost most of its old glamour and pre-war beauty during the destructive and oppressive communist regime which ruled the country for fifty years and ordered the demolition of several parts of the old city districts. Despite all that, our vintage ride in a vintage car in Bucharest offers a dazzling sightseeing blend of different eras - grey buildings from Nicolae Ceausescu`s period, beautiful French palaces inspired by French architecture, 21st century glass and steel office buildings or remains of medieval churches.
