History and Restoration

The building that houses Cărturești Carusel has a rich history. It was originally built in 1860 as the Chrissoveloni Palace, home to a powerful family of bankers in Romania. The building was later used as a department store during the communist era, before standing neglected for almost a quarter of a century. It took 24 years of court battles, untangling bureaucratic loops, and finding the proper documents in archives before the building was finally acquired in 2007. It then underwent a remarkable transformation to become the Cărturești Carusel bookstore that stands today.
