Carol Factory Bucharest-South

Carol Factory. Bucharest South – description

The city is moving. Including the other side of Unirii Boulevard: new nature in Văcăreşti, galleries, art and design centres appear in old factories, cool bars and restaurants and new generation entrepreneurship. The isolated and forgotten South is today one of the busiest areas.


About 12 independent initiatives, development and urban culture in the grim part of the city

Let’s not beat around the bush: those of us who do not live in the southern part of Bucharest rarely go there, unless we have some specific reason. Exceptions are usually parks and malls.

Traditionally the poorest side of Bucharest, the South received a new blow with the demolitions and especially Ceaușescu’s sinister avenue, which literally cut the town in half and isolated the south even deeper.
