Macca-Villacrosse Passage Tours

The Macca Villacrosse Passage, also known as the Pasajul Macca-Vilacrosse, is a fork-shaped arcaded street in central Bucharest. Covered with yellow glass to allow natural light to shine through, the passage was built at the end of the 19th century to connect the Calea Victoriei and the National Bank. Today, the Macca side of the passage opens on to Calea Victoriei, one of Bucharest’s main avenues, while the Villacrosse side opens to the National Bank and Strada Eugeniu Carada. The passage has a French look to it and is similar to other covered passages built in Milan and Paris during the same period. During Communist times, it was known as the Jewelry Passage due to the presence of the city’s largest jewelry shops, but the original name was restored in 1990. 

Today, the passage is still home to a few jewelry shops, but also features several restaurants, cafes, boutiques and hookah bars.

Practical Info

The Macca-Villacrosse Passage is accessible from the Universitate Metro station. It is also within walking distance of many Bucharest hotels and other sites such as the National Museum of Romanian History and the Bucharest Museum.
