for ever friends

Old Town City Centre / Bucharest, Romania
Bucharest, at one time known as "Little Paris", is an edgy city with an eclectic mix of architecture ranging from 17th century to Communist-era to modernism. The bombing of the historic city centre during World War II, combined with Ceausescu's failed urban redevelopment program in the 1970's and 80's which ultimately ended in a violent coup, has resulted in pockets of destruction that still remain today. Yet the warmth and energy of the city perseveres.
