BCR Housing Bank backs the restoration of traditional houses in Romania

BCR Housing Bank, the Monumentum Association and the Global Heritage Fund held, on Wednesday, at the Romanian Peasant's Club, a press conference on the restoration of traditional houses in Romania. 

BCR Housing Bank's Deputy CEO Carmen Schuster, the Monumentum Association's President Eugen Vaida, and Brian Curran, GHF Project Manager, participated in the conference. 

According to a survey commissioned by BCR Housing Bank, the proportion of Romanian customers who declare that their own buildings need improvement in the next 12 months has increased from 23% in 2013 to 29% in 2014, which means that housing emergencies accumulate. In this context, traditional houses in Transylvania, Banat, Bukovina and other historical regions represent a double priority, renovation and preservation of cultural heritage. 

The traditional Saxon homes Transylvania alone represent impressive cultural legacy spread throughout more than 250 localities, counting, at the same time, 180 fortified churches, say BCR Housing Bank representatives.
