About the tour

Every city looks different in the night lights. We will virtually tour Bucharest in the evening too, the city once called the little Paris, passing by some of the the most important landmarks of the city along Victory Avenue including the Romanian Athenaeum - the temple of art and culture for Romanians, the former Royal Palace, the Revolution Square, the Officers' Circle Palace but also other beautiful architectural buildings from "la Belle Epoque" erected in an era when French became Romanians' favorite foreign language.

I was surprised by the architectural magnificence of some of the buildings. I assume that Bucharest achieved its importance as a City and trading centre because of the river yet the area around the river was not filmed. I asked a question about this and was told that the river has not been fully exploited. i am most surprised by this but this may be due to the Communist regime. The Romanians have a dreadful press due to the orphanages and poverty gap between rich and poor. It may not be politically wise to discuss such matters but it would be useful yo have a better understanding of the politics and deprivation in so far as it is allowed by the state government. Bucharest appears to have some beautiful buildings but I fear that there is a side of life that is being hidden by the guide and in reality it does need to be addressed so that people can better appreciate the whole way of life of the people rather than just that of the tourists and the very wealthy. I fear that there is a story that is being hidden from us and if the country is to promote itself as a tourist and business centre it needs to address and open up about its politics so that it can receive support from the wealthy western European countries. Beautiful buildings help but do not constitute a beautiful country if the populace are enslaved in extreme poverty.
