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.
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,
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).
Bucharest is a town of contrasts. It combines cosmopolitan living with traditional aspects.
The following photo, taken while strolling through one of the most beautiful parks in town, Herăstrău, illustrates this idea so well, to my mind.
What is this ? A graffiti in the park, of course. Maybe. As far as I am concerned it is not a simply graffiti in the park. It is an invitation. It says: It’s time to come and see Bucharest, the town of lovers.
One of the best places in Bucharest, the town of lovers, is the Herăstrău Park. Especially in spring. Full of happy people, full of flowers, full of light.
Just take a look.
I consider the ultimate rule of a blogger is to listen to his readers. So, I am decided to obey this rule.
A few day ago, Florin commented that I missed the best street, right in the middle of my route. It was about Dumbrava Roșie street. Of course, I went back, having a look for myself.
I must agree with Florin, it is an amazing and mysterious street, with great and unique buildings (you will easily recognize again the neo-romanian architectural style). And also it is so close to the Ioanid park, a small but enchanting place.
