In September, in Big Beautiful Bucharest sun rises at 7 o’clock sharp. Not so early, I think. So, it is a perfect time to wake up my daughter and search for the sun in the park.
We were lucky enough to experience a wonderful time in the Alexandru Ioan Cuza park (former IOR park) yesterday. She was impressed by the colors of the sunrise. I was moved by the people. There was so many people wandering, running, strolling, walking with their dogs, riding their bikes or simply admiring the sun.
Big Beautiful Bucharest is full of paradoxes. Right in the middle of the old town, a place well-known for its crowded pubs, there is a small and beautiful church dating from the beginning of the 18th century, with an incredible interior garden, where you can immerse yourself into a whole different world.
The Stavropoleos Church is a place where you can regain your peace of mind. It is so small and simple and yet so fascinating. Just take a look at the photos:
There is a magical place in Big Beautiful Bucharest where you can experience one of the last caravanserais in the Balkans region: The Manuc’s Inn (Hanul lui Manuc). You can easily find it, next to the Old Court and the Saint Anton Church, on the French Street (Strada Franceză), in the Old Town.
Bucharest is hot. So hot that the ladies are using their fans. 🙂
On the Dâmbovița river banks life is always surprising to me.
As you may know the Dâmbovița river is crossing this lovely town, full of courageous and curious people, always eager to learn something new (the big public library you can see in the above pictures is often packed with all kind of peoples).
In the last 30 days I tried to convince you that Bucharest is an interesting place to live in. And I will go on to tell my story about this place. Maybe not on a daily basis, but systematically.
I do hope that you will have the opportunity someday to discover the beauty of this town of lovers. If so, do not hesitate to leave a comment on my blog dedicated to Bucharest.
Until then, have a good life !
In Bucharest we cherish life. In all its forms. We love animals in the town of lovers. Take a look at these photos, captured downtown, in the park, and you will understand what I am talking about.
You will often see dogs,
Imagine a peaceful Sunday of spring in Bucharest, when some locals are going for a walk along the Victoria Avenue, the well-known street of the town of lovers. The air is full of linden scent and French perfume. And the cakes of Casa Capșa, enjoyed on a street corner, are unbelievable.
So, when in Bucharest, do not miss out the Victoria Avenue. The life of Bucharest starts here.
