HISTORY OF MILITARY CIRCLE IN BUCHAREST

As an institution, The Military Circle appeared during Alexandru Ioan Cuza reign, in 1860 and it was a club for officers and army commanders. The purpose was to bring them together and assure them a nice place to talk and change ideas and strategies. The Military Circle in Bucharest needed a headquarters, so in 1898, five architects made plans for the building and a committee decided who was to make the plans. The winner was Dimitrie Maimarolu and the works started in 1911 and were almost finished in 1916. As Bucharest was occupied by German army during World War I, the Military Circle became a prison for Russian and Romanian soldiers. A German Commandment also worked here. The circle was officially opened in 1923 in the presence of King Ferdinand and his wife, Maria. After World War II, the building will serve as headquarters of Central House of the Romanian Army but will also house a football team, Steaua Bucharest, communist universities or the Army Theater.

MILITARY CIRCLE AND UNIVERSITY AREA

To remember Sarindar Monastery which rose on this land in the late 19th century, in 1964, in front of the Military Circle in Bucharest, the authorities will build Sarindar Fountain. The earthquake in 1977 almost destroyed the National Military Circle in Bucharest. It will be rebuilt between 1979 and 1984. It looks familiar to many visitors for it was built in French new-classical style with five levels for each frontage. From the restaurant terrace, you can enter the main restaurant and then in the Marble Hall, designed for special events. Next, you will enter the Moorish Hall. Gothic, Norwegian and Byzantine Halls are also part of the National Military Circle in Bucharest. The square in front of the building was called The Flag Square in 2000.
