Photographer's Note

In the fg is the Kilometre Zero monument built in 1938 by Constantin Baraski. It is in the exact centre of Bucharest and has 8 points leading to various provinces around Romania, some of which are now in Moldova (Chişinău, Orhei, Tighina) & Bulgaria (Silistra and Dobrich) (Bazargic). Around the bg wall you can see the names of some of the towns around what was then Romania.

I wouldn't make a special trip just to see this monument alone but the bg church, St George New Church, dating from 1707 AD, is definitely worth a visit. In the exterior facade you can spot the wonderful tile mosaic I uploaded yesterday. There are also impressive frescoes in the elaborate colonnaded portal.

Here's a useful tourist map with a closer view.

I did not go inside as I had an evening flight to Vienna, and wanted to see as many sites in the area as possible before returning to my hotel to pack.
