BUCHAREST UNDER OCCUPATION (1916-1918)
After Romania joined the First World War, Bucharest became the third European Capital, after Paris and London, to be bombed by the German air force. These days were marked by terror in the city, associated with the discovery that certain food items had been contaminated with strands of bacteria responsible for cholera, typhoid fever, anthrax and tetanus.
On November 23rd/December 6th 1916, German-Austrian-Hungarian troops occupied Bucharest. On December 8th 1916 the Imperial Government of the City of Bucharest was already in place. Local Romanian authorities such as the Mayor, the Police Prefect, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the county Prefect were subordinate to the Imperial Government.

THE FRESCOS OF VĂCĂREŞTI MONASTERY
40 YEARS LATER
On lands bought by the Court, the first Phanariote Hospodar of the Danubian Principalities, Nicholas Mavrocordatos had a monastery built, dedicated to the Holy Trinity and considered a “masterpiece of Romanian sacred art”. It was situated near Bucharest, to the south-east of the city, on a wide field atop Văcăreşti Hill, part of the Bucharest Hills.
The monastery sat atop a promontory, around 20 meters higher than the floodplains, surrounded by marshlands and pools on the northern, north-western, south and south-eastern sides.
HOW TO ENTER THE TIME OF YOUR CITY?
The concept of time is valuable not because of how long you live, but because of what you elect to do with the time you have in your life. Everything that happens allows you to explore yourself. The people you meet and the places you see are a pretext to discover yourself. What occurs, the events in your life, can be viewed as fluid confessions of your own thoughts in an attempt at reinvention. If out of these elements a story is born, then it means that your time has begun losing its patience. It is a sign that, for the first time, you have to cross its threshold.
