Casa Presei Libere
Casa Presei Libere is a building in northern Bucharest.
Built in 1956 and named Combinatul Poligrafic Casa Scānteii "I.V.Stalin" and later Casa Scīnteii (Scīnteia means The Spark, and was the name of the Romanian Communist Party's official newspaper). It was designed by the architect Horia Maicu, in a pure Soviet style , and was intended to house all of Bucharest's printing presses, the newsrooms and their staff.
It has basically the same role nowadays, with many of today's newspapers having their headquarters in the same building, now renamed Casa Presei Libere ("The House of the Free Press"). The Bucharest Stock Exchange is located in the southern wing.
