Old Inn-type House in Bucharest’s Former Jewish Area
19th century inn-type house with entrance passage and interior courtyard. Not many such edifices, characteristic of the regional architecture and of the atmosphere of the Balkan Bucharest, survived to the present day. The house is located on Anton Pann street, in the former, mostly Jewish, residential area lying to the east of the historical downtown (Lucaci – Traian neighborhood). To the south, the street used to communicate with Dudesti street, the main axis of the historical Dudesti neighborhood, until the demolitions that occurred in the 1980s brutally disrupted the street network.
