Unirii Square in Bucharest is crossed by the boulevard with the same name, which was built in the communist era, under the name of “Victory of Socialism Boulevard” and was inspired by Champs-Elysees in Paris. Unirii Square was built on the site of former huge halls built at Alexandru Ioan Cuza’s orders. In the 1930s, during the reign of King Carol II, some of these halls were demolished and green spaces with flowers and artesian fountains were set up in their place. Over time, in this area there were conducted massive constructions as part of the modernization plan developed by the former communist regime, which completely changed the landscape of Bucharest.
Today Unirii Square is one of the busiest areas in the Capital of Romania. The picturesque park in its center is a place loved by locals and tourists alike, while the shops in the area are favorites of those passionate about shopping. Near the Unirii Square in Bucharest there is also the Manuc Inn, an important historical building.
