The Jewish community was once one of the most numerous and picturesque minority communities in Bucharest, and the Jewish quarter was a compact residential area on the left bank of the Dambovita.
As a landmark, in the interwar period, in Bucharest, this community represented 11% of the city's population, and the neighborhood had as its central axis Calea Vacaresti and the beginning of Caii Dudesti.
Following the massive demolition of the '80s, the Jewish Quarter was one of the most affected areas of Bucharest, many historic houses-monuments being demolished, and entire streets disappeared.
An interesting historical area of Bucharest, which we are waiting for you to discover together, because - although time has passed over it - it still has a lot to show and tell us.
