Considered the most expensive district in Bucharest, Primăverii does not have a very long or tumultuous history such as Dorobanti or Cotroceni districts (two other luxury districts in Bucharest). Primăverii is rather a new neighborhood, dating back to the early 1930s. Its exclusive characher makes this neighborhood truly special.
After Marmorosch Blank Bank parceled out Jianu – Bordei area in 1932, the land was bought by the Gas and Electricity Company of Bucharest, which delegated the architect Octav Doicescu to design the whole area with single-family houses. He wanted to build an emblematic village, with properties featuring a distinct architectural style, surrounded by lots of gardens and greenery. However, things changed after World War II.
During the communist era, Primaverii was known as the “Forbidden District” because it was inhabited by many state dignitaries, who were “standing close” to Gheorghe Gheorghiu Dej and then to his successor, Nicolae Ceaușescu. They had the privilege of live there only as long as they were on duty. Once they retired or happened to fall into the dictator’s disgrace, they were moved to other areas.
After 1990, all incumbent presidents lived here.
At the present, the neighborhood is a combination of sumptuous villas, with green, beautifully landscaped gardens, and new apartment buildings, offering elegant, exclusive homes for the most demanding tastes.
At 50 Primaverii Boulevard, there is ‘Ceausescu’s Palace’, the house where the last dictator of Romania, Nicolae Ceausescu, lived and which is now a museum.
The residence consists of 80 rooms, of which only 30 can be visited by the public. The guest reception hall upstairs has been visited by great personalities such as Richard Nixon, the President of the USA, Charles de Gaulle, the President of France, Fidel Castro of Cuba, etc.
In Ceaușescu’s House there is also a real SPA center with sauna and tanning salon, hairdresser and hair styling salon, a huge swimming pool, a generous greenhouse, a cinema hall, as well as an inner courtyard surrounded by the Palace building, but also an anti-atomic bunker.
Another building associated with the communist nomenclature and transformed into a museum in 2018 is located on 15 Primaverii Boulevard. Conceived as a private villa in 1939, the original building was the temporary residence of the dreaded Ana Pauker, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Stalinist flag bearer in Romania, currently hosting the Museum of Recent Art (MARe).
Primaverii district is also famous for its select restaurants and cafés, as well as for its relaxation spots. The most famous restaurants in the area are: Osho, Fior di Latte, Mesogios, Poesia, City Grill, Trottoria Buongiorno or Club Floreasca.
Club Floreasca offers leisure facilities such as: indoor pool, outdoor pool, fitness room, sauna or tennis court.
Although Primaverii is a small neighborhood, the educational offer is quite varied. Here we can find the famous Jean Monnet High School, ITech Academy or Native English School, as well as Brightivity Montessori kindergarten.
Primaverii District offers select homes, whether they are stylish villas with green, beautiful gardens or spacious and elegant apartments with generous terraces. Most apartments have splendid views and permanent security.
