I flew to Bucharest Romania via Frankfurt from the Narita International Airport. It is a beginning of trip to Romania.

Henri Coandă International Airport is the busiest international airport, located in Otopeni, 16.5 km north of Bucharest’s city centre. The airport is named after Romanian flight pioneer Henri Coandă, builder of Coandă-1910 (Motor jet engine) aircraft.

I took a taxi going to the booked hotel on the street of Vitan-Bârzeşti Bucharest.

Bucharest is the capital and largest city of Romania, as well as its cultural, industrial, and financial centre. It has a population 1,883,425 in 2011.

The next day, I will take a tour in the city of Bucharest and head for Brasov.

Hotel Grand Rin and State Park (Delta Vacaresti) Bucharest

I did not notice last night, but the next day there was a state park (Delta Vacaresti) spreading in front of the hotel. It was really beautiful. After this I am going to the famous big house, Parliament House Bucharest.

From the hotel Rin Grand, going to Palace of Parliamen. Former Central Committee of the Communist Party. Revolution Square. Kretzulescu Orthodox Church. National Museum of Art in Bucharest.

The Palace of the Parliament also known the People’s House is the seat of the Parliament of Romania. Located on Dealul Arsenalului (Spirii Hill) in central Bucharest, it is the largest administrative building in the world.

We arrived in front of the Parliament House.

 In the 1980’s, Nicolae Ceauşescu, then president, was created as “Palace”. The colossal parliament building known for its ornate interior composed of 23 sections, it houses the Senate and the Chamber of Deputies, three museums and an international conference center.

The inside of the most luxurious Palace of the Parliament Rumania

Decorated luxuriously halls and some of the buildings such as corridors are open to the public for a fee. The reason why only a limited number of rooms can be opened is because the number of rooms currently exceeds 3,000, which is too large to manage.

The interior of the palace is all made of marble, up to the floor, ceiling, pillars and stairs.

Ceausescu was executed on January 7, 1990 in Romania before the palace was completed.

We arrived at the Patriarchal Cathedral (Metropolitan Church) in Bucharest.

The Metropolitan Church, also known as the Orthodox Patriarchal Cathedral is a functioning religious and civic landmark, located on the hill called Dealul Mitropoliei, in Bucharest, Romania. The structure was begun in 1654 and completed in 1658 under the orders of the Wallachian prince, Serban Basarb.

Arrived at the Arc de Triomphe.

The triumphal arch is located on the Kiseleff Street in the northern part of the city of Bucharest. The first wooden triumphal arch was built after Romania gained its independence (1878). Another temporary arch was built on the same site, in 1922, after World War I, which was demolished in 1935 to make way for the current triumphal arch, which was inaugurated in September 1936.

Arcul de Triumf; After taking this picture, I will leave Bucharest.

I have heard that Bucharest is dangerous, so I am not going to stay long in this town. I will go to Brasov from now on.
