Building the Bucharest National Opera House
The Opera House's beautiful edifice was built in 1952-1953 and it followed a style dubbed "socialist realism". This type of architecture was popular at the time - when communism was new to Romania, and the building has a neoclassical design that turned away from the modernist tendencies that were becoming popular elsewhere.
