船游东欧五国（Day 10 ~ 11 布加勒斯特，罗马尼亚）
My favorite breakfast
Beginning with a scenic ride with a scenic ride through the Romania countryside …
Stopped at the Village Museum which is one of the premier outdoor museums in the world.
It features rural houses, churches and buildings from all parts of Romania displayed in a beautiful park.
Like a window through time…
Lunched at a local restaurant with a folk dance…
It serveed a mix of traditional Romanian dishes.
Romanians like useing clay pots and cast-iron kettles for cooking.
Because food prepared in this way has a unique taste, but not quite the presentation style I expected.
Even there’s nothing professional in what they do, but I felt there are some overjoyed atmosphere flowing around their dance…
According to the World Records Academy, the palace of parliament is the world’s largest civilian building with an administrative function, most expensive administrative building and heaviest building.
From the outside it looked impressive, however inside it’s quite bare.
Everything is big, but it is empty, unfurnished, cold, and creepy.
Unfortunately, the tour provided absolutely no history behind the building or Romania’s communist past.
Also I paid an extra fee for taking photos and was a little disappointed.
If you do go the palace with very low expectations and it will be ok 🙂
Not very beautiful square in my oppinion, but full of history, because it is the place where lots of people got shot and died.
The lower part of the building (R) with the remnant walls is
It is really interesting contrast between the modern glass and the old stone.
Checking in at Radisson Blu Hotel Bucharest which located in the heart of the Bucharest for a one night stay.
Very modern and well decorated hotel, lots of blue glowing lights.
Great location, just blocks from downtown…
There is a grocery store and bakery right around the corner from the hotel.
It is always a simple way to relax and enjoy …
Buffet breakfast was quite enjoyable, especially the custom-made omelettes.
After breakfast we went for a stroll around the old town …
We were too early as the stores opened from 10:00am.
What I love about this place is the mixture of different styles…
From the hotel to airport transfer, arranged through Viking River Cruises, met us at the lobby as scheduled.
Great view of the Danube River
Flying back home …
总的来说对这次River Cruise 感觉还算满意，尤其对船上的起居、服务、餐饮等的专业水平，唯一让我遗憾的是船上的娱乐活动不多，好在是天天靠岸有活动(I will say that the service on board was very friendly, affable, and professional at all times. My only complaint about the river cruise is the lack of entertainment.)。
还有就是太不习惯这类组团的活动，because I are not interested in taking an organized tour(large group).
