Bucharest was formerly called “East Paris” and today we see the tracks. A walk through Bucharest is an orgy in decay and abandoned houses. See a city where vulgar architecture and modern historical decay are natural features of the cityscape.
Bucharest is a contrasting city. The majority of residents have an average income of about 500 Euros a month. The wounds after the dictator Ceausescu will take a long time to heal.
Dictator Ceausescu left not only houses in urgent need of maintenance. Thousands of children’s children’s children lost their homes and fled to Bucharest. They sheltered in tunnels under the streets that were built when Bucharest got district heating.
In many of the abandoned houses, some of Bucharest’s all street dogs live.
The future of real estate workers and craftsmen in Romania would look incredibly bright.
