Today an exclusivist area of the capital, Cotroceni was in the XVII century a wide forest stretched to the river Dambovita. In 1678 the owner of these lands, Serban Cantacuzino, is beign followed and is trying to save his life by sheltering himself in the Cotroceni Forest. The name of the area comes from the expression “a cotroci” which means “to search for” because the dense forest was a place where the thieves were hiding.

The Cotroceni Neighborhood  is born with the construction of Cotroceni Monastery and the noble houses by Serban Cantacuzino. These houses were used as summer residences by rulers like Carol I and Alexandru Ioan Cuza. With the construction of the Cotroceni Palace the area started to develop as an elite neighborhood which attracted important personalities such as Carol Davila, Ion Barbu, Ion Minculescu or Eugen Lovinescu and many doctors, artists and professors.

By discovering the streets of the neighborhood you will feel the vibe of the former Bucharest, many of the houses being unchanged although are fighting with the passing of time. The secret of Cotroceni is that the area is urbanistic protected, for keeping the homogeneity and diversity of architectural styles (neo-romanian architecture, neo-maura and modernist architecture)
