Join us for the Cultural Dinner event on Tuesday evening, September 29 at Manuc's Inn Hanul lui Manuc, is the oldest operating hotel building in Bucharest. Its massive, multiply balconied courtyard has also hosted many performances and fairs.
The inn was built in 1808, and originally owned by a wealthy and flamboyant Armenian entrepreneur, Manuc-bei. By the middle of the 19th century, it was Bucharest's most important commercial complex.
The inn was the site of the preliminary talks for the Treaty of Bucharest, which put an end to the 1806 – 1812 Russo –Turkish war. In 1842 it briefly housed Bucharest's town hall. Around 1880 a hall at the inn was used as a theatre, and was the site of the first Romanian operetta performance.
Before Romania entered Word War I, in 1914–1916, the hall "Sala Dacia" hosted meetings of the Wallachian pro-war party seeking to establish a Greater Romania by uniting with Transylvania and Bukovina.The building was nationalized 19 February 1949. Ownership was restored to Prince Șerban-Constantin Cantacuzino in February 2007.
