Dudesti Neighborhood

July 3, 2014

A surviving fragment of the historical Dudesti neighborhood, once home to a modest, predominantly Jewish population of tradesmen, small shopkeepers, clerks etc.
Most of the area has undergone drastic transformation during the urban systematization of the 1980s, when houses were torn down over a vast area to make way for communist style standardized high-rise housing units.
These houses built in different styles and different decades, largely from late 19th century to the 1930s, preserve something of the old look and feel of the place – peaceful conviviality, color and a specific charm.
