Just touched down in Bucharest and paid my dues to one of the earliest examples of modernist architecture in the city. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With its cyclical shape and flat roof, there were few buildings like it when it was built in 1936. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
According to surveyors, the building is under high risk of collapsing if an earthquake was to ever occur, so I’m glad I got to see it now in case an one ever strikes! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#socialistmodernism #modernistarchitecture #bucharestarchitecture

Here’s a little snippet of some long-lost footage from the soviet spa town of Tskaltubo.

Excuse the shakiness - my gimbal broke on the staircase to Stalin’s holiday apartment, ‘think his ghost has been hexing western journalists to stop them from filming the place )) In other news, after a long break I’m breathing a bit of life back into the website so you’ll find some new content there soon!

This is one of the only remaining soviet-era pools to be preserved at Bathhouse Number 9 in Tskaltubo. The spa was frequented by Stalin, who would treat his left arm that he injured as a youth in the local Radon-infused waters. It was believed that Tskaltubo's slightly radioactive springs had medicinal properties, and they were referred to as 'fountains of beauty.' 
This pool in particular features delicate porcelain figures in the centre which are typical of classical socialist style
