To everyone’s surprise, the wonderful renovation of this place, and the spectacular transformation that followed closely in terms of functionality, benefited from public funding.
Hanul Gabroveni (Gabroveni Inn) is a building with a very rich history, undergoing many, many transformations in the 18th, 19th and 20th century. The place reached its glory in the 19th century as one of the most important settlements in the city.
Today, it is one of the biggest cultural centers in Bucharest, hosting well-rated events and producing its own events as well: from local art exhibitions, performances and urban interventions, to international drama & music festivals and workshops.
I recommend you check the online agenda beforehand to see if there is something language won’t stop you from going to. If you don’t manage to find anything online, I am pretty sure the infoHUB and then the exhibition upstairs will always reveal something worthwhile which might actually take you on a new path to urban exploration.
Gabroveni Inn is in the old town, so make sure you don’t move past without taking the chance to take a look inside.
