City of Contrasts | Bucharest, Romania

,

When I prepared myself for the trip to Romania, I often stumbled upon the word “contrasts” connected to Bucharest. Extreme wealth next to bitter poverty, prospering businesses next to destroyed buildings.

All that came back to my mind the moment I set foot in Bucharest. How often can you drink a (surprisingly expensive) beer in front of a ruin? This photo is taken right in the Old Town of Bucharest and I think you get a feeling for what I mean with “contrasts”. Just a few streets further they build a new 5-star Hotel.

I’m really curious how Bucharest will develop as the city felt to me like there is really something about to happen. I guess 5 years from now you won’t see much of those contrasts anymore, but who knows?
