... got to the bridge, I must say, I was less than impressed. As far as picturesque river views go, Budapest has Bucharest beat by a mile. But, looking at my photo now, it looks prettier than it seemed in the moment.
I backtracked to Lipscani and was won over by the old world charm and architecture. And the quiet! The cobblestone streets were also very quiet. Not completely deserted, but fairly empty. Most of the Old City has been converted into restaurants ...
