The city centre has also retained architecture from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, particularly the interwar period, which is often seen as the "golden age" of Bucharest architecture as its shown in Bucharest downtown map. During this time, the city grew significantly in size and wealth therefore seeking to emulate other large European capitals such as Paris.
