My third bitcoin run was in Bucharest, the capital city of Romania, where I studied and worked for eight years.
This bitcoin run took me around one and a half hours for around 12.8 km. Trying to avoid the air pollution, my pace was sub-medium for this run:
Let’s now see some Bucharest’ attractions along on my bitcoin run.
Bitcoin Run City Tour Pictures
Right next to the Piața Universității, you find the National Theatre Bucharest:
and the five star “Hotel Intercontinental”
At the other end of Bulevardul Magheru (en. Magheru Boulevard) I reach the Piața Romană (en. Roman Square), a major traffic intersection, with Bucharest Academy of Economic Studies (ro. Academia de Studii Economice - ASE) “watching” over it:
Close to Piața Romană, at the tip of the B bangs, I have found the statue of a dacian nobleman:
At the end of the first B loop I have found Foișorul de Foc (literally The Fire Tower), which is a 42-metre-high building and was used in the past as an observation tower by the firemen:
At Parcul Izvorul Rece, half-way on the bitcoin run, I was in doubt whether I should continue, because I was getting tired and had some place I had to go, but I pushed on and completeed the bitcoin run
Passing Piața Universității again, but now going south on Bulevardul Ion C. Brătianu I reach Piața Unirii (en. “Union Square”). This is one of the largest squares in Central Bucharest and a significant transport hub:
At the end of Bulevardul Unirii (en. “Union Boulevard”), at Piața Constituției (Romanian for “Constitution Square”) you can see the Palace of the Parliament (Romanian: Palatul Parlamentului), also known as the Republic’s House (Casa Republicii) or People’s House (Casa Poporului)
The Palace of the Parliament in Bucharest is believed to be the heaviest building in the world.
A closer look reveals it’s a massive building:
I continue my bitcoin run along the Dâmbovița River, where a couple of fishermen pass their time
I have very nice memories spending my summers as child on Dâmbovița’s shores in Comuna Stoenești
On the river’s shore you can also find the Romanian National Library:
When I want to pay the parking ticket, I was pleasantly surprised to find this Bitcoin Machine where you can buy bitcoins:
All in all, Bucharest is definitely worth a run or visit - give it a try!
