Late Fall Romania 2018


While I visited Romania and Vienna in 2018 I found myself immersed in a perfect world of contrasts. Romania and its’ post communist recovery with its’ beautiful Art Nouveau & Art Deco architecture interspersed with Functionalism and the Second Empire Style. Here are photos of Bucharest including some from the Spring Palace, the golden nest egg of Communist Dictator Nicholae Ceausescu. I’ll be using this as a building block to define contrast within Romanian architectural styles and contrasting Romania & Austria.

Below, photos from the Palace of Parliament, the 2nd largest building in the world, in Romania. The Dictator destroyed villages to build a near vacant, yet beautiful furnished palatial monstrosity.
