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.

Between 18 and 20 September, The City Hall honors those who change things in good : 36 of the personalities and the most important projects in music, theater, ecology, tourism, sport and journalism were nominated by BucureştiTu Gala – Awards Bucharest.

Bucharest City Hall, through Creart, organized Saturday, September 19, 2015, in Constitution Square, the 2015 iMapp Bucharest.

Libraries have always been a fascinating space, historical places where reading becomes a ritual, in which time is suspended, and where it feels like the lives of other times are pulsating through. With each library that had disappeared, the whole world it carried, disappeared along with it.
We live in an age where going to the library seems somewhat obsolete, in an age where time no longer has patience, and the books from an entire library can fit in a virtual memory you take with you anywhere. And yet, in Romania there are some fabulous libraries, where the reading taste is quite different, be it about modern spaces or the historic building.
In the following moments I will present to you the most beautiful Romanian libraries. Read the rest of this entry
A city without ghosts is not entirely a city !
If you love the paranormal stuff and if you are in for an adventure then this is for you. Just like any other country in the world, Romania’s capital, Bucharest has its own fair share of myths and lengends about haunted buildings. I’ve heard them all but I never had the time to explore them. Here’s a list of the most known to be haunted buildings in and around Bucharest. Note that these aren’t the single ones,there are far more places that have a haunted legend behind them.
1. Palace of the Parliament
The building has a surface of 330,000 hectares, following after World Records Academy, at the “buildings”, 2nd place in the world after the Pentagon, and in terms of volume, with 2,550,000 m³ of his , 3rd in the world after the missile assembly building space from Cape Canaveral in Florida after the pyramid of Quetzalcoatl in Mexico. For comparison it can be mentioned that the building exceeds 2% volume Cheops pyramid in Egypt, and therefore some sources characterized it as a “pharaonic” building. The guards say that they hear noises there,though no one is inside. Read the rest of this entry
Bucharest , the capital city of Romania is home to almost two million inhabitants and is a European tourism attraction for another million visitors every year. During the inter-war period, Bucharest was called “small Paris” due to the fact that it had the same Parisian charm but on a smaller scale. Today, Bucharest is a great city break idea for those who wish to taste a bit of Romanian culture and enjoy a great time. What exactly is it that you can do in Bucharest ? Well, here is what I think you can try while in Bucharest.
