Un altfel de Bucuresti

Printre cladirile de birouri, blocurile pline cu reclame in culori neon, betoane, trafic ametitor, multa agitatie si zumzet iritant, se desfasoara in centrul Bucurestiului un Mic Paris, cum a fost el denumit.

Micul Paris de Bucuresti este un oras in miniatura, cu vechi strazi pitoresti in care vibreaza inca sufletul unor epoci si moravuri apuse, plin de  sarm, foarte cochet si atrage incredibil de multi turisti.

Strada Lipscani a fost dintotdeauna destinata comertului. Odinioara, era o adevarata sarbatoare sosirea carelor cu marfa de la Lipsca. Pana in 1868, cand a fost inaugurata prima cale ferata Bucuresti – Giurgiu si a fost inlesnita legatura cu Apusul, negustorii aduceau marfa folosind carele cu boi.

In centrul istoric de astazi al Bucurestilor, care a supravietuit cu greu perioadei comuniste, doar numele strazilor mai aminteste de vechile bresle de altadat’: Selari, Covaci, Sepcari, Gabroveni, Zarafi… In urma cu cinci sute de ani, la marginea dinspre Apus a Bucurestilor care, bineinteles, nu avea intinderea de astazi, s-a inchegat o comunitate de scortari care mestesugea neintrecut tesaturi taranesti groase, din lana, cu modele si flori, care erau asezate pe pat, pe lavite sau pe jos. Mahalaua avea sa le poarte numele: scortari. Acesti mestesugari au fost printre primii care s-au grupat intr-o mahala a breslelor, in care erau reuniti si macelarii, sapunarii ori tabacii.

ACUM, CENTRUL VECHI, 2013

lipscani2013

In acest moment strazile din Centrul Vechi sunt pline ziua, cele mai multe dintre magazine fiind cele de antichitati si obiecte de arta, extrem de pitoresti. De asemenea, zona este renumita pentru magazinele care comercializeaza rochii de mireasa si costume pentru nunti. Centrul Vechi este foarte populat si noaptea, aici aflandu-se numeroase cluburi si restaurante ale capitale.

Ca si atractii in zona Centrului Vechi pot enumera:

-Hanul lui Manuc, monument arhitectural de mare importanţă construit de renumitul negustor armean Manuc-bei în secolul XIX, a fost inital format din 15 pivnite boltite, 23 pravalii, saloane, magazii, camere destinate servitorilor, bucatarii, dar si incaperi ce aveau ca scop gazduirea a peste 500 de persoane

-Hanul cu Tei, singurul han istoric din Bucureşti care şi-a păstrat forma de origine

-Teatrul de Comedie.  Cu un repertoriu dedicat genului comic în marea sa diversitate, de la Shakespeare, Cehov sau Gogol la comedia bulevardieră, teatrul absurdului sau comedia neagra, Teatrul de Comedie este unic în România.

-Muzeul Curtea Veche-Palatul Voievodal sau Curtea Domneasca este cel mai vechi monument feudal din Bucuresti, care timp de peste doua secole a fost resedinta a domnitorilor munteni, paralel, pana la 1660 cu vechea capitala Targoviste, an dupa care ramane capitala unica a Tarii Romanesti, iar dupa 1862 a Principatelor Unite Romane, respectiv a Romaniei.

-Muzeul Bancii Nationale a Romaniei. Patrimonul Muzeului este extrem de bogat deoarece, inca de la infiintarea sa, Banca Nationala a Romaniei si-a format o colectie proprie de tapiserii, tablouri, sculpturi, medalii, monede si bancnote.

-Muzeul National de Istorie a Romaniei,  adăpostit într-o clădire monument istoric, denumită în trecut Palatul Poştelor, aflată în cuprinsul vechiului centru istoric al Bucureştiului si construita intre 1894–1899. În sala Tezaurului Istoric sunt expuse peste 3.000 de piese deosebite (unele unicat), realizate din metale şi pietre preţioase aparţinând unor civilizaţii care au existat – de-a lungul timpului – pe teritoriul actual al ţării noastre sau ilustrând evenimente şi activitatea unor personalităţi istorice din vremurile trecute.

O incursiune in timp? Cu siguranta!

Daca merita? Absolut! In mod sigur veti gasi si alte puncte de atractie, zona ofera din plin astfel de surprize: o cladire din 1800, sculpturi traditionale din lemn pur, vitralii, porti cu ornamente aurii, de exemplu, specifice zonei si rangului boieresc, cladiri cu balcoane în stil baroc, faţade în stil clasic şi decoraţii eclectice.

Si bineinteles, daca va ajuta cumva, va recomand o super cazare in zona, http://www.eastcomfort.com/romania/bucharest/ap22-2r-apartment.en.html sau http://www.eastcomfort.com/romania/bucharest/ap5-2r-apartment.en.html

Think Cold Ice Hotel

But for those who love winter sports and loves the snow and ice, I thought the only ice hotel in Eastern Europe,
built in the heart of Fagaras Mountains, at Pension Cabana Balea Lac.

My problem is that the hotel’s shape changes from year to year and can not receive visitors than winter. This year the theme was building “Think Cold Ice Hotel.”

Dambovicioara Keys Trip

Dambovicioara Keys Trip

Have you ever wonder when a ant it’s right next to you, what she fells like? Do you think that she is afraid by your stature?

If you want to know how small you are in comparison to the world you live in, you certantly must check you Damvovicioara’s Keys on Rucar – Bran lane, it’s included on the natural reservation Piatra Craiului. It’s a woderfull place for nature lovers, here reunites many of man passions like hiking, cave exploration, birdwatching or if you want to relax this is the perfect place to excape the daily routine, the noises of the big town’s, the modern chaos, yourself relaxing in a rented room in one of the Bran Pensions.

I remember when I was for the first time in this part of the country, amazed by the beauty, by the imposing stature of the cliffs, astonished how a river of only 1-2 m wide can create a natural wonder unique in the world. I was only 16 years old wen I went on a roadtrip with my highschool class, and when we arrived everybody was sticked to the window of the bus and from all the noise and screams there was only one exclamation in a choir that sounded like “Oahh”.

It was love at first site for everybody, the entrance of the keys looked like a entrance of a big cave that has no end, the walls are closed to each other between 30 – 50 feet and has a diagonal position.

We  rent a bus from EuroCars and the bus driver was going slowly, leaving us to admire the view or he has more scared than us that a rock from above would drop on the bus, but after almost 3 km we’ve reached your destination, Dambovicioara’s Cave. We take a guide, split in 2 groups and we enter, I think he was almost 14 years old and he just ended elementary school, but he talked so openlly about the cave so he captured our attention, especially when he started talking about the history of it, that in the past it was lived by outlaws, afterward by a monk. It followed the main atraction, the geological fornations of the cave, that acording to the guide looked like a bears paw, a wing of an eagle, a tigre’s fur. But onestlly I felt like a was at a psychiatrist, the Rorschach test, wen he puts in the front of you a piece of paper smuged with ink, and he asks you what do you see, everybody saw what they want, imagination has no limits.

And we left the cave, tired from all that traveling, we arived at de hostel were we met our accommodations. The host encountered us typical romanian, not with the red carpet but with bread and salt. And to go all well, the host gave us each a glass of plum brandy, a little because we were minors.

The time to eat has arived, what can be more good than cabbage filled with meat, a steak of pork, and to go even better and not to choke, a home made wine, for desert a so so so good sponge cake, I think so the name of the pension “Mama Cozonacilor”

The second day, was a sad day because we left, we sat around a little longer in the court yard, they had a football field (european football J), trouts, pheasants, but how the word goes “A traveler comes, a traveler goes”, it was time to go home.

It’s a road trip that worths every moment, you wish that this dream will never end, and stay here on these picturesque lands a life time, filled by good and worm people.

Even if you are a local tourist with your personal car, or if you’re a foreign one and you chose to rent a car, Damboviciora’s Keys it’s a destination that you don’t want to miss. What can I say about the acces roads, it’s ok to go from Bucharest to Targoviste, but after this the road isn’t very good, so prepare for holes, dust, slowly driving, but for a local from Bucharest it’s just an ordinary day J. For an itinerary I recommend Bucuresti – Targoviste – Cheile Damboviciorei – Rucar – Bran – Brasov – Busteni – Sinaia – Bucuresti, so you covered a beautifull touristic area in our country, but are many more for you to discover.

And a map of the outlaws will take you directly to the destination.

Don’t forget Romania “Land Of Choice”!
