Balneary Architecture Festival – Hanelore Dumitrache our senior project designer, spent time in Romania this summer and had the pleasure of visiting the Balneary Architecture week-long event in her home town of Baile Govora.

Balneary Architecture Festival – Baile Govora is a spa town in Romania famous for its natural mineral springs. The town had been a cherished hotspot for balneary treatments since the early 1900s, visited by patients from all over Europe. Since the fall of the communist regime in 1989, many of the impressive buildings have been abandoned and fallen into disrepair.
