The Bucharest Lounge is a place for spreading the word about funky Bucharest and beautiful Romania. This blog saw the light of the day because of pure enthousiasm to get the crowds back to Romania !!!
For me, as a Swede, Romania was in a way a “black hole” until September 2011. I never read about it for years, never saw anything in media about it, more than the stereotypical picture we see in the news and I think : it’s about time now !
I visited Mamaia in 1985 and those were other times.
Me, my mum and my grand-parents in Mamaia 1985.
Communism times. In 1989 there was the so called Revolution and ever since Romania has been developing rapidly. I would like to make Romania a destination for traveling again.
I hope you become curious about this country and what it has to offer. I hope some Romanians feel the kick in the butt and start marketing this gorgeous, beautiful country that has so much to offer. It’s like a hidden gem. Waiting to be discovered. Potential waiting to be unlocked. Work to be done. Sorry, but spreading pictures and texts on webpages and Facebook that are only in Romanian doesn’t do the trick if wanting the world to come and visit. Write in English (and any other language! ) and spread them. Voila !
There is so much to see and do. To bottom-line it : Bucharest itself is a dynamic, eclectic, fantastic town with lots of gorgeous architecture spiced up with modern buildings. It’s a modern, southern European funky city. – With all the commodities you ever wish for.
Then there are the Carpathian Mountains where you can ski & The Black Sea Coast 2 hrs away from Bucharest, where you can live happily whole summer. Climate is pleasant. Food is very natural and tasty. Wine is abundant. Language is Latin-based and culture too.
Just to mention a few great things there.
The world just need to know !
This is The Bucharest Lounge where I rebrand Romania since 2011.
