Militari

Militari

Militari is a district in the western part of Bucharest, in Sector 6. It is home of more than 100,000 inhabitants.

In the past a village called "Militari" existed here, but today they are only few houses left from this time.

The first apartment buildings (with 2,3 and 4 floors) have been built in the 1950s by Communist party workers. Later, in the 1970s and 1980s, most of the present-day blocks of flats (with 8 and 10 flats) have been built.

The district is very compact and it was built using a basic three parallel boulevards-geometry. Militari is packed between Drumul Taberei and Crângaşi districts and it is one of the westernmost neighborhoods of Bucharest. It is serviced by the Bucharest Metro, buses, trolleybuses and tramways which connect it with the city center and the Gara de Nord railway station.

Because of its access to the A1 motorway, the district developed rapidly following the Romanian Revolution of 1989, transforming itself in one of the most prosperous regions in Bucharest. In recent years the district saw the opening of two hypermarkets (Cora and Carrefour) and a large mall ("Plaza Romania"). The district has a new theatre ("Masca") and a modern cinema ("Movieplex").
