This was our last long drive from Transylvania to Bucharest. We stayed in the centre of Bucharest, very near to the Old Town area which has a variety of beautiful buildings and interesting sculptures. This area also has an abundance of restaurants with tables set up on the cobbled streets outside so you can enjoy the sunshine and cool breeze whilst watching people walking past.
We explored the nearby park which had a lake in the middle with rowing boats for hire. The park was pretty busy as the weather was so good and many people, both young and old, have come out to enjoy the beautiful surroundings. I love the many tree-lined paths providing cool shade and the park benches dotted around were beautifully carved with intricate designs.
That evening, we had a lovely Italian pasta dinner. I love this picture of the boys – both the brothers have the same lop-sided smile!
On our last day, we walked to the Parliament building and I can confirm that it is indeed enormous! We looked from afar and I noticed that even the lampposts in the area have beautiful intricate designs. There was a long avenue with a stretch of mini fountains in the middle of the road leading up to the Parliament.
This part of Bucharest is full of beautiful and grand buildings, some with ornate gates or windows.
