How did you like Bucharest? | Romania

Wherever you go, there are cables. Some are hanging to the ground, some are still in place. But they really are on every single street light.

Palace of the Parliament | Bucharest, Romania

The Palace of the Parliament, the biggest building of Europe, you will inevitably pass once you’re in Bucharest. The immense building stands at the end of the long and wide Unirii-Boulevard and it is hard to show its size on a photo.
