Very interesting .. Romania in the early and mid 20th century was Europe's largest oil producer excluding the Soviet Union. Constanta if I recall is Romania's center of oil production it's cool to see what i'm assuming are effects of the "oil boom". I've also heard that Bucharest was one of the most cosmopolitan cities in central or eastern Europe during the interwar years unfortunately Nicolae Ceaușescu fancied himself an urban planner and knocked down 1/4 of the old city to make way for the 2nd largest administration building in the world (planned to be the largest but the revolution of 1989 halted construction).

^^ The oil centers were Bucharest, Constanta and Ploiesti. In the 30s the main industries were focused on trains, trams and cars. Also agriculture had a big part in the economy. A big part in the economy had the many US companies and the Romanian-US joint ventures

At the end of 1800s on a field outside Bucharest (that was used for public executions) they started to organise the cities weekend fair. In the 20s on the site is build a permanent fun park called Luna Park. It had the 1st roller coaster in Romania.













In 1936 the park is demolished to make space for the largest shopping center in Romania. It was planed to be executed in 3 stages: shopping center, storage area and an office tower wit a sky bar. Saldy due to WW2 and communism only the 1st 2 stages of the shopping center were finished and thet functioned only as a market. The building has a gorund surface of 24.000 sqm / 258.333 sqf







Arch. were Horia Creanga and Haralamb Georgescu, known in USA as Harlan Georgesco. He left Romania for USA in 1947 and established itself as an architect in Palm Springs CA.
