Abandoned Regime Newspaper and Printing Business in Bucharest1 min read

Once again, we are again in the Romanian capital, Bucharest, where the schedule for the day includes an abandoned newspaper and printing business.


It is a very large office building where the upper floors formerly were offices for a newspaper while the lower consisted of printing and pressing.

On inner courtyard bundles of fresh newspapers were thrown into waiting trucks. When the Romanian dictator Ceauşescu had fallen, the newspaper wasn’t profitable any more.

Much of the content was made up of materials that were only for the benefit of the dictator.

For some years the tenants consisted of revised papers, but with the size of the premises, it was not sustainable to house a smaller newspaper in this former place that earlier was paid by the regime.

The house was built in the late 1800s. It has resulted in amounts of debris left behind over the years.

Last drop is gone, as well as this building soon.

The lobby was once grand. Plaques of influential people in the media had their own board.

In the basement was noticed that the workers tried to put their own stamp on the workplace.

One guess is that this bench has been used for developing photographs. Perhaps of the most dramatic days in the revolution of December 1989?
