Noaptea Caselor ‘The Night of the Houses’ in Bucharest

Noaptea Caselor (Night of the Houses) took place on September 27th in Bucharest, and was inspired by Europe’s Night of Museums events programme, which involves various museums staying open throughout the night.

However, Noaptea Caselor is about discovering ‘alternative’ cultural centres set up in historical buildings. This informal event was the idea of two groups — Carol 53 and Casa Jurnalistului — who wanted to raise public awareness about Bucharest’s heritage. According to the description of the event, it’s above all a chance for people to thumb their noses at “hostile local authorities and an apathetic social environment.”

Check the article I wrote for Cafebabel about the phenomenon in Bucharest.
