    Nice job with the selective colouring – it catches the eye. :)

  • Thanks a lot, but actually there is no selective colouring, just natural colours:)).

    Montmartre looks great hehe, I can’t help but think of it as for the old city center in Bucharest, as it was built exactly to match the buildings in Paris

  • Thanks Bogdan, I didn’t know this – I am starting to like Bucharest already:).

  • Thanks a lot for your comment Christine, Bucharest is definitely worth a visit!

    Yes, unfortunately, the old city center isn’t in as good shape as it was in the past compared to Paris, the communist era did “mark” it :)

    anyway Bucharest in the 1900s was called “Little Paris” because of that

    there are parks, large squares, and a lot buildings, that look exactly like the ones in Paris heh, I have never been to Paris, but I have a lot of friends who’ve traveled there and I saw lotsa pictures and was amazed of the huge similarity of the buildings

  • It’s very interesting that Paris and Bucharest are so alike. There some very beautiful buildings in Bucharest – thanks for sharing the links Bogdan. I know what you mean by the communist era mark, shame that so many beautiful places were not taken care of or even fully or partially destroyed in the past.

    Well, I can’t stop myself to add some to the above comments; The times Bogdan is talking about, Romania was a Kingdom, and we had a king, Carol I of Romania, original name Prince Karl Eitel Friedrich Zephyrinus Ludwig of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen; after his death the throne was taken over by his nephew, Ferdinand of Hohenzollern.
    It is evident that the burgeoise copyed all Western Culture, including architecture; they even tried to speak France. Not too many succeded though 
    Unfortunately Western and Eastern Europe are located at different poles – one Catholic and the other one Orthodox. So History followed what Religion dictated: Divide et Impera.

  • Interesting historic facts Mary, thanks for sharing!
