Bucureşti MallEdit profile
The Bucureşti Mall is a shopping mall located in Bucharest, Romania, close to the Dudeşti and VÄƒcÄƒreşti neighbourhoods. At the time of its completion it was the first shopping mall in Romania. Located on Calea Vitan approximately 1 km outside Bucharest's historic center, the four-story, 50,000 m² mall opened in 1999, in a Ceauşescu-era abandoned hunger circus, or giant food warehouse, in an area largely shaped during the Communist period (see Ceauşima). The transformation into a modern mall was a 40-million-US dollar project, carried out by the Turkish firm Bayındır Fiba.
