Tătărași Athenaeum

The Tătărași Athenaeum is a cultural institution with tradition, from the neighbourhood with the same name, inaugurated in 1920 under the name “Tătărași” Popular Athenaeum.

The members of the founding association included intellectuals, clergymen and even simple people from the neighbourhood. The institution’s main mission was promoting and supporting national culture in Tătărași neighbourhood. The athenaeum’s members maintained permanent cultural links to similar institutions in other Romanian provinces through numerous theatre, poetry, dance and festival tours. The building, in Neo Romanian style, shaped as a cula from Oltenia, was damaged by the 1977 earthquake and then, demolished. The institution was founded again in 2003, in a new modern building.
