Close up of trompe l'oeil mural with people on balconies

Zentrum Apartments, Chisinau, Moldova, July 2019

This tromp l’oeil mural decorates a hotel in central Chisinau. It is located in a building that dates back to 1875, built with the participation of the renowned architect Alexander Bernardazzi. this artistic facade takes us back to the days when the building housed an art gallery and studio.

  1. My sincere apologies for visiting so late this week. I’ve had all kinds of trouble keeping my internet going, and now I’m playing catch up.

    These are beautiful murals and great examples of tromp l’oeil. Most impressive and a beautiful entry this week.
