My final post in this iPhone photography series is on my all too brief visit to Bucharest. As I was returning to Canada on a very early flight (actually three connecting flights) from Bucharest, I travelled there the afternoon before and had a little time to see some sights.
Getting to the city core took a long time as the traffic seemed to be constantly at a crawl. Once at the hotel, I wandered the streets surrounding it for a bit and saw a very interesting city. There were some old run down buildings but many were in good condition and quite impressive.
During my wandering, I saw Muzeul Colecţiilor de Artă (the Art Collections Museum) and had to go in to check it out. I have to say I was very impressed. It is a large, three storey building, in a U shape, and is full of paintings, busts and other artifacts. It took me almost three hours to view everything and I am not sure that I didn’t miss anything.
As I continued to wander, I spotted the even larger and more impressive looking National Museum of Art of Romania, however, I didn’t have time to visit it on this trip. In fact, there were many sights around the city that I would have loved to have the time to check out, but with very limited time, I wasn’t able to on this trip.
