HISTORY OF CEC PALACE IN BUCHAREST

In fact, the first institution CEC PALACE in Bucharest, dealing with people’s economies and credits appeared in 1864, following an Alexandru Ioan Cuza’s order. The first manager was Eric Winterhalder, a German who lived between 1808 and 1889. The nowadays building, near The National History Museum and at the entrance to the Old City of Bucharest you will surely see when you travel to Bucharest, replaced older buildings, dating back to the 18th century, or even older. In 1577 there was a monastery on the place of CEC Palace, St. John, the wander maker. The monks will build an inn and a market nearby. When, in 1863, under Cuza’s rule, the Church lost many of its properties, everything in the area was demolished. The first CEC Palace was one-floor building, simple, dedicated to poor people of the time. Later, it will flourish.

A very interesting painting like Fortune sharing prosperity, made by Mihail Simonidi, at CEC Palace in Bucharest, could have been seen on the ceiling, like the visitors could also see portraits of King Carol I and Queen Elisabeth. They were all half destroyed by communists after 1948.
