Beautiful city, Bucharest, although authorities should keep up with the renovation.

I am rather astounded at how Latin it looks.
Could be French or even Spanish, those houses...

I expected it to be more Eastern-looking, more Greek, Turk or Slavic, somehow...
I think I´ve seen pictures of Brasov and they definitely looked to me more "Eastern" than Bucharest.
I realise most buildings are from the XIXth century, with very few medieval buildings.
Why is it?

I´m still unable to tell the age nor the style of an Orthodox church.

Oh and a question: is the Ceaucescu palace used? Or is it abandoned? Looks rather big...

the city was once called little Paris because of it's many buildings designed by French architects , a tribute to Romania's strong diplomatic relations with France in the interbelic period that's why it resembles the west (from some angles at least ), to bad Ceausescu razed to the ground a very large percentage of those buildings to build ugly commie towers. In Transylvania the style is more Austrian from the region's occupation by the Austrian and Austro-hungarian empires.
ps: the big palace it's now used as the House of Parliament and other political offices.
