Journey to the past

One of the most visited places in Bucharest, the town of lovers, is an open-air ethnographic museum located in the Herastrau Park, the Village Museum. Locals and tourists alike are always enchanted to take a journey to the past, visiting old country houses right in the middle of Bucharest.

On this sunny October day I just took some fresh photos in the Village Museum in Buharest. I invite you to have a look.

The green town

Big Beautiful Bucharest, the town of lovers, is a green place. Where locals and tourists can have a stroll in the park, make jogging, ride their bikes (or borrow a bike for less than one euro an hour).

There are so many parks in Bucharest, so the real issue is to choose one. This time I’ll show you some beautiful places from Tineretului Park, one of the many big and tranquil parks of Bucharest. The air smells clean and sweet with the scent of wildflowers, conifers, nuts and lake (there is a lake larger than 13 hectares in its center).

Below you can find some fresh photos taken this morning in the Tineretului Park, one of the wonderful places of Big Beautiful Bucharest, the town of lovers.

Connected to the bike revolution

All over the world there is a bike revolution in the making. More and more people are ready to ride their bikes, forgetting about boring cars. They reject comfort and they choose joy instead. They give up security, but they are ready to experience wind and sun, they are eager to feel the rain, to smell the flowers. Because bike riders understand and obey the rules of simple life. They understand and value happiness.

Bucharest, the town of lovers, makes no exception of this. Today, Bucharest is an important part of the world bike revolution.

Excellent coffee, perfect wine

In Bucharest, the town of lovers, we take pleasure in spending quality time with our beloved. We always appreciate a good cup of coffee and a glass of red dry wine till late in night. We enjoy life, we know how to be happy and live life to the full. We like to talk interesting stuff, we love to dance, we have good sense of humor. We are delighted to eat a good meal (and one can find plenty of good food in Bucharest, the town of lovers).

I always wondered why are Romanians so alive, so colorful, so full of energy. And right now I think I know the answer. In Bucharest one can easily find excellent coffee and perfect wine. At affordable price (for instance, a bottle of red dry wine from 1997 can be bought at 10 euros). That’s making life better.

Living in a quiet town

There are places in Bucharest perfect for little strolls in the neighbourhood. Especially in autumn, you can feel the smell of grapes, you can take a look at the beautiful houses, you can enjoy kids laugh in the park.

Do not understand me wrong. Bucharest is not always a quiet town. But there are magical places where you can enjoy the silence of my town.

Until you will come to Bucharest, let me show you some fresh photos.
