The first one is located in the old Lipscani district. It got us impressed with the intelligent reconstruction of an existing old building with cleverly introduced additional levels and a very cozy interior.

The other Cărtureşti Verona bookstore is located in a house built in 1883. Its owner was Prime Minister Dimitrie Sturdza of the Liberal government ruling Romania at that time. With the advent of Communism, the house was nationalized, and after the changes in the 1990s it underwent many transformations. The current owner is an architect and got involved in the project of the building restoration and transformation into a bookstore, a cultural center or just a meeting place.
Richly ornated ceilings are an impressive bookstore decor.
The music hall has a wonderfully preserved white marble fireplace, a crystal mirror with baroque gypsum ornaments. The authentic cooking stove is preserved in the old kitchen. It is a decor for culinary literature, healthy food and a variety of accessories, design objects related to cooking.
The attic is for children's books and games. It feels as you're on a big ship.
