Bucharest

Piata Romana

share

Piata Romana is where some of the city's most important avenues meet, notably Bulevarduls Magheru, Lascar Cartagiu and Dacia. It is home to arguably the country's most prestigious university, the Academy of Economic Studies (ASE), but like many other public squares in Bucharest the impact of its architectural gems is dampened somewhat by the heavy traffic which passes through. Nearby is busy Piata Amzei, a decent produce market that has recently been renovated, and which is flanked by some decent cafes and restaurants.

The metro station at Piata Romana is one of the most bizarre on the Bucharest underground system: a thick wall with just a few small openings for passengers to get through separates the platforms from the trains. Why? The station was an afterthought: originally there was to be no intermediate station between Universitate and Piata Victoriei.
