Paris of the East?

I arrived here about 3 months ago, and am gradually learning about history, the culture and of course, the people.
This may not be the Paris of the East any longer (despite the Arcul de Triumf), but it's an interesting place that deserves getting to know.
If you can ignore the dogs, the incredibly bad driving, the heart-breaking beggars and street children, then the city is your to discover.

Remnants of grandeur

Believe it or not, there are some wicked bars hidden down this alley. The best places aren't the most obvious. But then that's applicable to so many aspects of life, isn't it?

Blue, red and yellow

OK, so I've got a thing about flags. But isn't this a great one? So simple, yet so effective.
