Palace of the Parliament | Bucharest, Romania

The Palace of the Parliament in Bucharest in sunlight. HDR Photo from 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. The Palace is so big that I had problems to capture it in a single photo even with my wide-angle lens.

Unfortunately, the weather conditions during our stay in Bucharest haven’t been the best for photography. When we were there during the day we had pure blue sky and it was raining when we were hoping for a sunset. And on another day, when there actually was a nice sunrise, we lost our way and ended up on the wrong boulevard. But at least we have a good reason to go back to Bucharest one day.
