1024. Bucaresti, Calea Victoriei. Palatul Adriatica

Dear Adrian,

Although I know your favorite city is Tel-Aviv 
I'm sending you a vintage postcard of Bucharest, 
another city that you like too. The building in the 
picture is the Adriatica Asigurarea Building, a 
hidden jewel of Modernist architecture. It was 
built in 1935 by German-Jewish architect Rudolf 
Fränkel who had to flee from Nazi Germany in 
1933. Fränkel also completed another fantastic 
Modernist building of Bucharest: the Scala cinema.

Best regards,
