Tineretului on the map of Bucharest

Tineretului is a small (0,62 km2) neighborhood in south Bucharest, Romania in Sector 4, close to the city center, named after the nearby Tineretului Park. It is one the most preferred neighborhoods by people seeking to buy an apartment.[1] This is due to the well established public transportation (two metro lines, bus and tram routes), two nearby parks; along with banks, commercial spaces and schools. In 2015 there were a number of 17.981 people registered living in this area.[2]

History[edit]

Interest in the area begun in the 1960s when a new road that linked North Bucharest to the South was constructed under the name Magistrala Nord-Sud. The road was later renamed Dimitrie Cantemir Boulevard. Construction of Tineretului Park was finished in 1965. This led to a fast urbanization of the area. Because the park was arranged and cleaned by young volunteers from schools and factories (Communist propaganda) it was named Parcul Tineretului literally meaning park of the youths. [3]

Transportation[edit]

The area is served by Tineretului, Piata Sudului and Constantin Brâncoveanu metro stations. Busses that go through the area include 381, 313, 312, 116, 634.
