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. 🙂
