Live Music. Laser Projections. Fun. Celebration. Awards And A Very Bright and Awesome Bucharest. One I wish to see more often, not only on special occasions like the Bucharest Days. Not complaining, but we could really use some atmosphere in a rather grey city.
Last weekend, Bucharest has been extremely colorful due to The Bucharest Days, which has taken place in several locations around the city – Constitution Square, Old Town, Cișmigiu and Herastrau Parks, Băneasa Railway Station and George Enescu Square. What can I say ? It was SIMPLY AWESOME. Too bad I couldn’t go because that was my weekend to work, but at least I got the chance to see a small part of it while waiting for my ride home. Maybe next year I’ll attend the event for real. In the following minutes you’ll get a closer look at what the Bucharest Days really mean, so buckle up.
