Travel Photo Of The Week: A stylized Christmas Tree in Piața Universității (University Square), in downtown Bucharest.
We got tired of waiting for snow here in Bucharest so we decided to go out the other day and catch the Christmas preparations along the main boulevards of Bucharest.
Hey Santa! We’re ready for that snow, now! Here’s the proof:
Christmas lights curtain in University Square, near Colței Church and Colțea Hospital (the oldest hospital in Bucharest, built in 1704).
Crăciun Fericit is Romanian for Merry Christmas.
Statues of Ion Luca Caragiale (Romanian novelist) and 16 of his characters exposed in front of National Theater Bucharest.
Kids’ joy: toys exhibition in front of Cărturești Bookstore and a small Christmas market near Cocor shopping center.
Neon lights across the busy boulevards of downtown Bucharest: Nicolae Bălcescu and Ion C. Brătianu boulevards.

Hope it snows by Christmas…
