At the end of 1800s on a field outside Bucharest (that was used for public executions) they started to organise the cities weekend fair. In the 20s on the site is build a permanent fun park called Luna Park. It had the 1st roller coaster in Romania.

In 1936 the park is demolished to make space for the largest shopping center in Romania. It was planed to be executed in 3 stages: shopping center, storage area and an office tower wit a sky bar. Saldy due to WW2 and communism only the 1st 2 stages of the shopping center were finished and thet functioned only as a market. The building has a gorund surface of 24.000 sqm / 258.333 sqf

Arch. were Horia Creanga and Haralamb Georgescu, known in USA as Harlan Georgesco. He left Romania for USA in 1947 and established itself as an architect in Palm Springs CA.
