capitalism gone wild

Bulevardul Unirii / Bucharest, Romania
Dominated by the colossal Palace of Parliament, the Bulevardul Unirii was designed with intentions of rivalling the Champs Elysees but is mostly interesting for its old fashioned Communist architecture. Unfortunately, the enormous billboards on the apartment blocks around the square cloak any meaningful view of the buildings - another testimony to the final victory of capitalism in the Romanian capital.

The Times Square of Bucharest. Boy they love their billboards.
