Torchlight Military Parade in Ceremonial Uniforms in Bucharest

Yesterday evening I was the witness of an impromptu and very picturesque military parade in Bucharest, on the Boulevard Elisabeta. The participants are in ceremonial uniforms and some of them bear torches. The parade might have taken place to mark the day of the tricolour, the Romanian flag, although I believe that particular event was sometime at the end of June. I found it very reminiscent of Fin de Siècle Bucharest, like a nice illustrated postcards from times of yore :), a century or so ago, when this city was known as the “Little Paris” of the Balkans.


I endeavor through this daily series of daily articles to inspire appreciation of the historic houses of Romania, a virtually undiscovered, but fascinating chapter of European architectural heritage.


If you plan acquiring a historic property in Romania or start a renovation project, I would be delighted to advice you in sourcing the property, specialist research, planning permissions, restoration project management, etc. To discuss your particular plan please see my contact details in the Contact page of this weblog.
