Old Bucharest

there are some...leftovers, remains of the good old days. you can find them here and there, should u look for them


first years in bucharest - i got tired and believed was getting dizzy only when seeing those thousands of people in the morning rush hour. In time i begun living it, then tasting it. From time to time, i even look for crowds, to fell as part of them.

Buc is fun

If you know where to look, and if u're relaxed....then you'll have a lot of fun in here. just look around!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:away from the large boulevards
  • Cons:no lookout point for panoramic views
  • In a nutshell:former "petit-Paris", now a large bazaar

    Love your tips! I keep in touch with a lovely prof from the Uni of Buc whom I met through work and I couldn`t imagine all this rudeness. :-)

    Fascinating page. I have had desire to seee Bucharest for many years. I have a real fascination with Romania. Maybe I will get there in 2009.

    A few new details within your page. I remember Bucarest since early 90s. It had been just before Causescu fell down.

    Not only your local custom tips are interesting, but also many other tips are helpful for my upcoming trip to Romania. Keep up the good work. I am looking forward to meeting you.

    Great tips, thanks for sharing!! Espcially the ones about local customs :) I've to visit Bucuresti for business next month, and I'll extend the visit a couple of days... I was there on 1987, I'm sure it's a lot different now! Regards from Barcelona, Isa

    Frumos, imi place; ai spirit de observatie si o ironie fina. Nu te lasa! P.S. Cum Dumnezeu ai ajuns in Nepal?!

    Interesante comentare...Raspunsul la intrebarea "de ce?" trebuie sa-l cautam in firea noastra umana, oriunde am fi in lume. Nu numai in Bucuresti, exista oameni si oameni... Imi plac foarte mult pozele tale! Gabriela
