Bucharest in pictures (I)

Posted on: May 17th, 2017, in Photography.

Lately I’ve been trying to photograph random things in the city. Sometimes I have some time to spare and if I have my phone with me, why not trying? Here are the photos I took in the last seven days. All the photos are taken with my phone camera and there is no effect added (only adjusted the settings of the camera). Enjoy!

In this image you can see the national library.

The national theater.

Even though is not the best looking picture, I included this here because this wall has an interesting story.
The painting on the wall changes every few months, which is an amazing thing. I visited this wall a few times and every single time there was a different painting there. I find it very inspiring.

In the park in front of the national theater there is this statue. Also, you can see one of the tallest buildings, the Intercontinental Hotel, which, if I am not mistaken, was the tallest building in the city during the communist era.

Beautiful photo of the sunset. This photo is taken in the dorms area in Bucharest.

I just love this photo <3

I hope you enjoyed these photos. Let me know if you want me to add more. Also I was thinking about writing a little bit about my country and the city I live in. What do you think? Let me know in the comments. Have a nice day <3

Gorgeous photos~! I would love to see more of Bucharest! I barely know anything of Romania or Bucharest!

Bucharest looks gorgeous. :)
I’m kinda ashamed to say that my idea of Bucharest was similar to how old movies showed russian comunist cities (ecause Bucharest, with Romania, has been under such a regime for quite a while): a rather dark, gloomy and sad city; I’m even more ashamed to admit that even these days the same idea is probably shared by many of my fellow italian citizens, due to the large number of people who escape/d – above all in the ’90s – Romania and came to Italy.
I’ve clearly been stupid, and missed out a lot; I’m probably gonna accept the invitation a romanian family friend (the woman who used to help my grandma with house chores, she came to Italy about 15 years ago) made to me to visit Romania while she is visiting her family during holidays – so they could act as touristic guides. :).

I actually found the “two-lines comments” thing kinda funny. LOL

If I ever come to Romania, I’d love to meet – I’d have 2 amazing guides (I can’t “ditch” my friend, her sister worked for the government in a high position so she can get me to places tourists are usually not allowed to go :p), how awesome is that? :D

I heard that from my friend as well: her parents live in the countryside and she said that some of their friends (elder people) still believe in the ideals of comunism, whereas young people and anyone living in big cities are all for living in the “modern” globalized world; Romania is definitely moving forward – the stereotypes are hard to fight but some people in Italy too are starting to really see their improvements – and that is always a good thing. :)

Aww, I really like these pictures, thanks for showing us around the city. I think it’s a good idea to share the beauty that you see everyday :) Would like to see more posts like this and stories!

The wall is so cool! I wonder what it looks like now 🤔🌸 my favorite is the one of the sunset. You should do more of these! it’s really cool to see the perspective of a different place :) and that is good info about the coffee, but i kind of feel like if i need it so much it might be worth getting rid of in my life. but who knows :p a lot of the people i talk to about it say things like “i’d never even think of giving up coffee” haha

Definitely write about Romania and the city in which you live! I’d love to know more (since chances are I’ll never visit Romania, which is sad ’cause you’re there and I’d love to meet you! Who knows?! The future might have different plans.) Anyway, PLEASE take more pictures of your country and provide little trivia facts or just interesting things about Romania. If I’m not mistaken, Bucharest is the capital, right?
