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.
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.
This time I will bring up another place in Bucharest where I like to hang around whenever I have some time: The Cișmigiu Garden. If you happen to be in Bucharest I invite you not to miss out the opportunity to have a walk in this lovely garden (the oldest in town, they say).
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.
If you really want Bucharest growing on you, take a good look at the crossroads. There is something special about this town’s crossroads. I do not know what. Maybe these pictures will help.
