Yesterday the arrival was smooth after a reasonable easyjet flight - no more complains about low cost airlines ;-).
Today was the big day: Visit to People´s palace!
I was not motivated by the fact that its claimed to be the second biggest building in the world, but because it was possible (only my opinion) the last great endeavour of a comunist regime.
Contrary to what a lot of people think, Nicolae Ceausescu never lived there. It's construction was justified by the necessity to have a place where all government would be hosted that would not colapse if a earthquake it Romania again (like the one that hit it in the 70's).
The construction of the palace implied a large reconstruction of Bucarest, new big avenues that complete the grandiosity of the picture ;-)
There are a few curious facts about it, google it ;-). One that I knew before but really impressed me when I was there, was the fact that it was entirely build by romanians only with romanian materials only! Once I saw it, I was impressed (even if it only a portion of it).
I do not regret the low price that I paid for the guided visit, friendly and effective guide. clap clap.
One can argue that Bucarest is just one more European Eastern City, what is true, but has it charme. I tend to compare new situation with past experiences, I was well surprised by the development and building maintenance, and I do not think is EU money only. (eheh the % of new and expensive cars can be related to that)
This milestone was acheived. Tomorrow I heading to Transilvania and with some chance to Draculas's Castle.
