Photographer's Note

Bucharest Old town has many imposing old buildings such as this. I am not sure if the fg building is the Bucharest Palace of Parliament or the bg French style building with the copper roof. Edit: It is neither of these buildings. The fg building is now occupied by the BCR Bank (Bank Commercial Romania) and the bg building is the National Bank of Romania. Here's another view I found when trying to find the name. https://c2.staticflickr.com/4/3383/4575455961_e4049f751b_z.jpg

And a useful website of the old town and a map with photos of landmarks.

I had heard that there wasn't much to see in Bucharest so it was a pleasant surprise that there are many fine old buildings in a neoclassical Baroque style throughout the old town along with some nice churches and an interesting archaeology museum and ruined castle where Vlad Tepe (a.k.a. Dracula) once lived.
