Life is all about seizing the moment and being happy.

船游东欧五国(Day 10 ~ 11 布加勒斯特,罗马尼亚)

Untitled-2'

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 the former building of the Romanian Securitate(秘密警察).
After the fall of Communist Romania in 1989 the building was demolished by protesters.
From 2003-2007 the building was redesigned and rebuilt a modern building inside and on top of these ruins.

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.

Beautiful decor

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.

Flying back home …

最后补上几句:
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).
也许,过10~20年之后再来River Cruise,那时应该会比较适应了,呵呵~

      一路沿多瑙河漂下来,觉得渐渐地土起来的感觉。
      罗马尼亚,老土的。
      我指的是人的精神面貌。。。

    头组照片里的绿色植物觉得当地气候很滋润,好有氧的感觉。还有下面早起拍的商店还没开门的那几张都好有感觉啊

      谢谢阿丽喜欢,是哦,这一路有许多19世纪建筑,可以看出受奥匈帝国建筑风格的影响很重,我觉得蛮富有人情味的。
      你那里应该轻松些了吧,有空聊~

  5. 罗马尼亚的女孩很漂亮!还记得她们体操队的那些女孩子,个个立体感的漂亮。这个river cruise很不错,将来也要试一试。期待你的下一个开篇!

      倒是更多了份想看看你跳舞照片的好奇心,可能的话从Email 发几张?嘿~
      嗯,River Cruise 相对要轻松休闲些,不需做太多的功课。
      等空下来我接着写意大利篇。。。

  6. 如果我要去,可能要安排到后年了。明天的计划就是巴拿马邮轮,然后和J回趟中国。

    July 3, 2014 at 12:51 pm

      我觉得Ocean Cruise 玩的内容多些,River Cruise 比较休闲些。你们还是先主攻巴拿马好。啊,带J回国?你有兴趣参与那种99刀的组团活动么?貌似很划算,但没了自由,因人而宜。
