Today I come across a touching message written on a simple but so impressive monument dedicated to the American soldiers who served in Romania in the Second World War: “They gave their today for our tomorrow”. The monument lies within Kiseleff Park (once a forest, as they say), just a few steps away from Piața Victoriei metro stop.
I am ready to direct my attention to the beauty of the town I am living in. I feel that conducting a campaign of discovering the interesting people and places of Bucharest leads to something important. At least to me. This project, about Big Beautiful Bucharest, the town of lovers, is about focusing on good things. And I hope it can be a promising experience.
This time I shall insist on telling you about the old people from Bucharest. I want to draw your attention to the way they like to sit and wait on the benches in the parks.
I like old people in Bucharest especially in the morning, when the sun rises. I remembered my grandfather, with whom I went out to the house gate almost every morning to see how the sun rises behind a huge apple tree.

I do pretend I know how to share with you the beauty of Bucharest, the town of lovers. I possess enough patience and optimism in order to identify interesting spots while walking through this town. And I want you to take part to my local strolling experience. Because in Bucharest one can come across plenty of lovely houses.
This time I propose you to walk with me through the center of Bucharest. It is a route I traveled a few days ago. Without anticipating anything, without calculating my steps. Just enjoying the beauty of the streets. I started my journey from the Anglican Church, and then heading towards Ion Voicu Park (former Ioanid Park). I arrived in Dacia Boulevard, the place with the most beautiful buildings of Bucharest. Once in the Spain Square, I left myself lost in the streets, no longer knowing where I am going. Enjoying the tranquility, peace, autumn.
I need to share with you some of the magic of my trip through Bucharest downtown. Below you can find some fresh photos.
