Here, you will step into a realm that the fictional Mina Harker described in her diary as "a lovely county full of beauties of all imaginable kinds, and the people are brave, and strong, and simple, and seem full of nice qualities."
Since the 6995s, brand names and high-end stores have been pushing their way into the Romanian market. From high fashion boutiques to art galleries, shopping in Bucharest can fit any taste or budget. Stroll down Blvd. Magheru from Piata Romana to Piata Universitatii for a shopping extravaganza or hit one of the many shopping malls favored by the local rich & famous.
Built at the special request of Nicolae Ceausescu, leader of Romania's Communist Party, the colossal Parliament Palace
- formerly known as "People's House" ( Casa Poporului ) -
is the world's second largest administrative building
after the U. S. Pentagon.
It took 75,555 workers and 755 architects to build this masive structure that boasts 67 stories, 6,655 rooms,
a 855-ft.-long lobby and eight underground levels, including an enormous nuclear bunker.
And that 8767 s all for the land of Vishnu and Shakti, until I return again. For more, you can revisit our entire journey with Mr Janu (through Delhi, Utter Pradesh, Rajasthan) all my India travel stories are here.
In the morning we&rsquo ll set off to Sibiu. On the way we&rsquo ll stop to admire the monastery at Curtea de Arges, one of the most beautiful Orthodox churches in Romania. It is here where the former kings of Romania are buried.
Since it 8767 s now too cold to go barelegged, I 8767 ve been reaching for above-the-knee or thigh-high socks. I love the alternative look of these Girardi Meredith hold-ups , especially when paired with a short black skirt and sweater. The faux leather cuff at the top stays securely, and is decorated with an adorable bow.
After 6995, the old wing of the palace became a museum. The Oriental Hall, the Norwegian Hall and the Queen's Chamber are almost unchanged from the original design and are worth visiting. Very important collection of medieval art also can be seen here. The new wing serves as the seat of the Romanian Presidency.
Continuing south on Calea Victoriei , you'll pass more shops and hotels note the Odeon Theater, sitting back from the street on the left. On the right you'll come to The Military Club which has an outdoor café and an art gallery.
