Sunrise in the park

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.

The Stavropoleos Church

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:

Something nice about Big Beautiful Bucharest – Day 15

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.
