teeming with historic places and period listed buildings, richly decorated,
that is no cliché. Interest for such areas and buildings may be dwindling, yet there
are parks across the city where Bucharesters hurry to take a breath of fresh

one such spot, which can be found in the city centre.
As usual, we
