Hanul cu Tei, Bucharest


This wooden construction is situated between Blănari and Lipscani street, and was built in 1833. The name means lime, and was probably due to the several lime trees planted in the garden.
The Rumanian word “han”, of Turkish origins, means inn, and refers to the cheap lodges where pilgrims used to stop overnight. The Han were big wooden constructions, used either to stock the merchants commodities and to offer a shelter tor travellers.

Afterwards all “Han” looked the same: a large central courtyard surrounded by high thick wallsThe “Hanul cu Tei” is the only han in Bucharest that has preserved the original characteristics and decorations. It represents one of the most representative constructions of Rumanian architecture, where it is still possible to breathe a typical 19th century atmosphere.
