The Victory avenue route offers a new type of experience in the form of a treasure hunt from a cultural perspective. The route captures various cultural elements from the Bucharest urban landscape, bringing to your attention buildings, monuments, statues or places of historical and social importance that have made their mark on the development of Bucharest we know today.
We will meet in front of the Romanian Athenaeum. We will establish the teams and right before we start off the adventure you will receive pieces of the puzzle that consists of photo and location indications and challenges. The encyclopedic nature of this CityHunt approach is provided by the fact that each of the cultural objects on the map (illustrated by the photo clue) must be associated with a description also found on the provided hunt materials. The trail will end with a well deserved hydratation break where we will have a juice, water or even a glass of beer while we will calculate the scores and establish the winners. The winning teams will be rewarded for their observation spirit.
The history of the street begins 327 years ago, being the first paved street in Romania and it subsequently paved before World War I. The history of Bucharest intertwines around the Victory avenue – this represented, over the years, a promenade place for the Romanians’ elites, Bucharest’s bohemian space, important commercial seeing, the area where the books of the great Romanian writers were written before being printed and the place where governments were constituted.
The old name of the street was “Mogosoaia Bridge” because this street was paved with wood beams and build by Constantin Brancoveanu to connect his estate from the shore of Dambovita to the one from Mogosoaia.
On Victoriei Way there are found many baroc buildings (Cantacuzino Palace), eclectic (CEC Palace), art-deco ( The Phone Palace), neoclassical ( The Romanian Athenaeum), neo-gothic (Sutu Palace) and others, the architectural diversity represents a real show.
We look forward for you to discovering the charm of a new urban cultural treasure hunt, which will not only be fun and an excellent way to spend time with your friends, but will also teach you small history lessons of Bucharest and Romania.
