Its name is attributed to a pastor named Bucur (Bucur), which means in Romanian “cheerful”, therefore the name Bucharest can be understood as “city of joy”.
The origin of Bucharest is linked to the construction of Curtea Veche in 1459, The New Palace of Vlad Tepes. Curtea Veche became the summer Court of Prince valaco and his family. Under the protection of his reign he was a slave market that involved a strong economic development of the area and caused the transfer of many Romanians, thus creating a new expanding city.
