Bucharest City App – the online guide we needed!

Bucharest city app 640x250

Hey, guys!

Let me just quickly inform you about the buzz around town these days, Bucharest City App, the free mobile app that becomes your friendly advisor when around this eastern-european city. Whether you are a tourist or a local, this app can help you with moving around the city.

I mean, better than information booths for tourists ( where exactly are those, anyhow?), with an online connection and a free install for your IOS or Android smart device, you get to answer all those petty questions when in Bucharest: What are the main attractions? Where is the Palace of the Parliament? Where should I eat? Where is the nearest pharmacy? What is going on tonight at the Opera? Where can I get the tickets for that film? 🙂

Most important categories you will find in the app:

  • events & parties
  • cinemas & movies
  • concerts
  • restaurants
  • clubs & pubs
  • coffee places
  • Bucharest attractions
  • medical services
  • different thematic routes in Bucharest
  • transport & travel: subway map, night and airport buses, taxis
  • shops
  • photo of the day
  • offers and promotions
  • playgrounds
  • spa and beauty
  • recommendations: handpicked events, traditional food, #EnjoyBucharest
  • Bucharest City App is an Eventur Group initiative. Alex Filip and Dragos Asaftei, together with their team of other 17 talented people are to congratulate for putting Bucharest on the map of up to date European capitals! Great work, guys! Keep up the wonderful initiatives, we stand by you. 🙂

Late autumn vibes in Bucharest

I met a friend. We walked around. I met a cat. He owned a bike.

I met some kids doing their homework on the streets.

A lot of ‘I’s were flashed along this journey. Don’t worry, though, my soul was rather stormy.

I met a stranger who kept me well outside of danger.

Thank you. ♥

Bucharest. I live here. I love it.

A conscious decision to care

That’s what I believe building love means.
Here is an Oscar-nominated stop-motion short film about the struggles of an upside down relationship. Sharing is caring. Thank you for sticking around.

HEAD OVER HEELS from Timothy Reckart on Vimeo.

“Of the animated shorts, [Head Over Heels is] the cleverest.”
-Stephen Holden, The New York Times

“The attention to detail is staggering, particularly for a stop-motion animated movie… There may be an impressive crop of animated shorts this year, but Head Over Heels is the most fully realized of the whole bunch. Flawless.”
-William Bibbiani, CraveOnline.com

“This beautifully animated film is also a wonderfully unique story… Both whimsical and deeply felt… Simply extraordinary.”
-Richard Propes, theindependentcritic.com

Enjoy.

Shine like you mean it

I like tattoos, but on other people. I am not sure if the next day I’d still be happy with my decision of making a dragonfly on my ankle, let’s say. Temporary tatoos? Well, that’s something I can definitely deal with for a few days. Flash Tattoos Romania – presented me the occasion of adding jewellery on my body in a very elegant way. As nervous as I was at first looking at all those golden shines, it all went very well! The results came perfectly synchronized with my 26th birthday as well. Thank you so much for such a lovely time! Here are the photos 🙂

Bucharest, the greener the better!

Unofficially, summer is here. We had our first thunder-wonder storm last Sunday and now the temperature never drops below 15. I call it heaven. The only downsize to it is that we still have offices to attend to. A green lunchbreak will always charge your batteries. Disconnect for a moment and let the sunshine soothe your soul.
Ah, Bucharest, sometimes…

Corners of contrast in Bucharest

Late April with long awaited sunny days. The mornings are particularly gorgeous. Crisp air with sharp light, vivid green starting to dress up the city with a sense of calmness.

No, no, no. I’m totally wrong, here comes the chaos. Morning traffic, angry faces, dark circles around hurried people’s eyes, honking, pedestrians going around the mud. Ah, they are digging up again. In the middle of the street. I find a sense of lyricism in these layers of Bucharest that are starting to show up. Let’s see: improvised mini markets behind cars with fresh fruit from gardens and steam in the air. Yes, that sounds very much like it. Like the crazy mix of the beautifully repainted theater and the mess and mud in the intersection, with the smoker woman inviting me for strawberries grown in her greenhouse and the supervised workers looking at my ass while i am crossing the street. The swearing words of the taxi driver rushing almost on my steps on the zebra and the journalist in smart clothes bumping into an old lady walking her blind dog. All of this. You have to feel it, I can only offer a glimpse.

Bucharest. I live here. I love it.
