LaReea has indicated that this thread is about Romania

Imagine a mélange of old buildings with an interesting and wonderful architecture with new and modern ones. Imagine strolling down the alleys of a park and then at night going crazy in clubs that play great music, and create an atmosphere that makes you feel like you’re floating. Or you might be more of a studious type of person, in which case you are lucky.Why? Because Bucharest has so many Museums you can visit, where you can interrelate with Romanian culture, learn interesting things and also spend a great time. The Botanical Garden, The Opera and all the theatres are also objectives you cannot miss.
And the food…One thing is for sure. You cannot go hungry in Bucharest. Starting with restaurants that serve traditional dishes such as the well-known “sarmalute cu mamaliga” all the way to Chinese food, Indian, or any other exotic type or restaurants you may think of.
What is special about Bucharest? It’s a modern Capital that has preserved somewhere deep down inside, the values, the magic and in some parts the look of what the world once knew as “Little Paris”. "Lipscani", the old City is a place full of magic. It brings you back in time, with the help of the wonderful architecture, the nice pavement, and the ruins of a roman building, recently found.

Hi,

Much as I agree with what you are saying with regards B'rest you are detracting from the country of Romania its self. Living in a village just outside Pitesti (and running an English B&B) I feel you are reducing the enjoyment value of the county as a whole. B'rest has many great attributes but travelling further afield enhances the true meaning of Romania. The many castles, villas, churches, monasteries and not to mention the Mountains is almost criminal. Romania is a unique experience to behold, yes, there are parts that still retain the communistic feel, but, the beauty and diversity is there to be seen. Don't just relate Romania to B'rest, let people see all that goes to make this country ROMANIA.
Oh yes .... I'm English, lived in Romania for 4.5yrs, and I love the country and the people that go to make this lovely county.

Yes it is true. And i am so happy that a foreigner can apreciate Romania. I have concentrated upon Bucharest it's true. Of course if you have time, visiting the entire country is the best choice. But people who usualy go on an European tour visit mostry the Capitals of the Countries.
