    Bucharest Things to Do

    There are several claims about the size of this building, some say it's the second largest, some the third.

So ASTRA, a vast collection of traditional Romanian buildings set in a forest and lake setting, was a must-see in Sibiu for me. It did not disappoint. The complex is very large and there are multiple buildings of each type...

    Brasov Warnings and Dangers

    There's not so many bear warnings in Brasov as Sinaia, but you are probably even more likely to encounter one here than in the mountains. That's because they've become accustomed to the easy life of rummaging through human trash. I saw quite a few overturned trash bins on the outskirts of the city, in the forests, and would see city workers coming...
