Bucharest

The bookmark from Bucharest, the capital of Romania. From my neighbours Miruna, Aleksandrina and Dan :-)



Bucharest is the capital city, industrial, and financial centre of Romania. In the period between the two World Wars, the city's elegant architecture and the sophistication of its elite earned Bucharest the nickname of the "Little Paris of the East". Although many buildings and districts in the historic centre were damaged or destroyed by war, earthquakes and Nicolae Ceaușescu's program of systematization, many survived. In recent years, the city has been experiencing an economic and cultural boom.
