Located on Selari Street, with the entrance next to a great glass panel covered facade, the Curtea Sticlarilor (En. Glassmakers' Yard) is one of the great - and of course hidden (hey, you are in Bucharest, nothing is obvious) - treasures of the Old Town. The yard hosts workshops of 6 craftsmen organized by Master Nicolae Cioboiu. They work glass the traditional way, similarly - up to a point - with French glassmakers that made stained glass windows for cathedrals during the 12th century. They produce here Galle or Nancy-like vases, Tiffany lamps, chandeliers, as well as stained glass panels. The yard also features a fine cast iron staircase, as well as a few souvenir shops and a relaxing cafeteria. Products coming from Curtea Sticlarilor can also be found in a few shops along Selari Street.

Address: 9-11 Selari Street
