I found these rare photos on Photobucket, on someone's named "etravel" photo album! Hoping he/she won't mind my actions, I post them here, it's a must see thread!! Thank you "etravel"!!
What a green and beautiful city. Lovely shots. Thank you
It's so cool, in Tehran we have a street in the Central Tehran that is named Bucharest Avenue and it's a very important and long street too
Wow, I didn't know that and it's really important! But how exactly do you say Bucharest in Iranian, I mean Bucharest is english for Bucuresti! It must date from the time of Ceausescu, I know he had a lot of friends in the islamic states, including Iran! Unfortunately, I'm not sure there is a Tehran or Iran or Khomeini or anything iranian named in Bucharest, I don't know about the rest of the country!
By the way, it's green because the shots are taken from far away! Bucharest has one of the smalest areas of parks and green spaces in Europe, if not the smalest! There are some parts that have more green than others, but generaly we suffer from a shortage of parks and green stuff! In Romania you see, if you have the right relations, you can just build on park areas and take down forrests and destroy vegetation without conceirn for the environmnet!
It's what democracy brought to us, corruption and not giving a damn about the natural surroundings! Most of the forrest area you can see in the pictures are from outside the city!
Actualy I was also surprised to see how good it looks from the sky. From street level more, a lot more to be done! About the highrise development projects, there are quite a few! I'm sure in just a few years, several highrise buildings will show up! There are some interesting projects!Woow green and looks very organized... I must say Bucharest has great potential and nice empty flat areas for future skyline development. I hope we will start to see "talls"
Not in the shots above, they are taken with the back against the mountains! But here are some shots of Bucharest in which mountains can be seen, taken from Google Earth. Mountains are at least 100-150 km away, so a really smog free or clear sky day is required!Are those mountains in the background?
