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:
Bucharest is hot. So hot that the ladies are using their fans. 🙂
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).
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.
Here, in Big Beautiful Bucharest, people believe in beauty, in summer, in girls, in luck and in God, of course. In a very peculiar way, without a doubt.
When have I started to understand and love Bucharest ?
I must admit I began to see Bucharest in other light (a better light, nevertheless) after I returned from Paris, in 2014.
Bucharest is not Little Paris, as they say. It is Big Beautiful Bucharest. But it is, in a strange way, similar to Paris. The beauty one can find in Paris is resembling, mysteriously, with the beauty of Bucharest. And I think it is something about women.
