During World War I, when Bucharest was occupied by the German army, the university stopped its activities and the studies were completely discontinued. They resumed in 1919 and the Romanian Social Institute was founded here. Over the years, more and more schools were added, until the university grew, becoming stronger and taking a real place in Romanian education.
The main building of the university is magnificent and impressive. Among other things you will find quite a few used book stands, old magazines, antique books, comic books and more.
The University Association ranked Bucharest among the top Romanian universities dealing with advanced research and education.
In 1927, the University of Bucharest issued a condemnation of these demonstrations and immediately expelled all the antisemitic students who took part in the terrible riots.
