  Stray dog on Tampa Hill

Romania has one of the highest stray dog population in the world.

This was caused during Ceausescu's dictatorship when private houses were destoyed and replaced by apartment blocks. People left their dogs on the streets where they propagated quite quickly.

You will see them even in the city centre and some of them might look quite cute.

When I once looked at one with a smile he followed us for about 10 minutes from Poarta Schei to the Saint Nicholas Orthodox Church. At times it even looked like he wanted to lead us to the church.

Anyway, stray dogs can also be quite aggressive, so always take care.
