Something nice about Big Beautiful Bucharest – Day 28

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.

I remember clearly when McDonald’s came to Bucharest, twenty years ago. The first McDonald’s restaurant was a great joy for young people of Bucharest. And it is still a nice place for small talks, dating, flirting, business.

I hope this feelings of joy, love and liberty associated with McDonald’s will go on in Bucharest.

What is the most annoying prejudice against Bucharest? Air quality in Bucharest, I dare say. It is so frustrating to hear again and again that Bucharest is one of the most polluted capitals of Europe. It is not true.

Maybe Bucharest is not the cleanest of all European towns, but air quality is pretty good. Please, do not trust me. Just check one of the Real-Time Air Quality Indexes available (I suggest the Romanian Agency for Environment Protection’s site)

Or, if you prefer another kind of argument, just take a look at the trees in Bucharest. They are rather healthy and in good condition, in my opinion.
