- Mosilor Street – Peek into Past
Mosilor Street or “Fai Bridge from Outside” was one of the most important road since the beginning, actually it was built before the town of Bucharest. Mosilor Street was a extension of highway commercial route which connected at East Moldavia and further Lvov (Liov) but also the old harbors (Braila and Galati).
Mosilor Street began near Royal Court from the place known as Saint Anthony Square and connected the fair bridge from outside Bucharest, the animal market which had to be beyond the barrier city.
The importance of Mosilor Street is that it was the first road paved with stone (in 1825).
Mosilor Street starts today from behind of Cocor Store, passes beside the former store “At sea eagle with fish in talons” which was the first shop with floor from Bucharest, and continue right through the “Old St. George” Church which was built by Balaceni boyars in the XV century (destroyed on The Big Fire from 1847, build recently).
Also on this route we will find Razvan Church which was in the past “The Nicolescu Inn” attended by Jewish, inn that had also a synagogue built in 1789.
Other buildings from past: Polish Inn and nearby the houses of pharmacist Nierecher (XIX century).
Beside “The Saints” church the road narrows and it can be found merchant houses, with floors and shops on the ground floor. Most of them were inn’s used as shelters for monks who came to collect revenue from church houses and also from church shops (like Cernica Inn).
The buildings of this area are characteristic of the first half of XX century, commercial and cultural buildings.
Also, on historic trail there are many old heritage buildings, some of them being classified as monuments.
