Bellu Church in Bucharest – its Neo-Romanian Style Fence Pillars

July 23, 2014

The pictures below represent the fence pillars of the “Bellu” Church, central-southern part of Bucharest. The church was built between 1925-1934, a time when the Neo-Romanian architectural style was at the apogee of its development. The pillars resemble medieval citadel bastions, conveying the idea of strength and endurance, a message of national identity characteristic to the Neo-Romanian architectural style. These fence pillars are among the most representative of the Neo-Romanian style, and the most expressive I know in Bucharest. Pictures taken October 2011.
