Bucharest in photos

Ruins. The central part of the town is, unfortunately, full of them.

It goes without saying this is a great way to destroy a valuable cultural heritage.

A very sad story! She looks like she was a beautiful building at one time!

@Leif:

thank you.

yes, it is indeed a very sad story.

the worst part is that there are hundreds and thousands buildings just like this.

in my view, this is somehow a "heritage" of the communist period - at that time, property could easily be confiscated by the state, so people were not very careful about what they owned. this situation created a sort of reflex in people's mind.

and if you add the lack of money, you get this.
