Bucharest and Avalon Waterways

IMG 3514The next day back in Bucharest we toured the Spring Palace of Nicolae Ceausescu filled with opulence and  grandeur. We also enjoyed a city tour driving past the Arch of Triumph and the Parliament building.

In the afternoon we boarded our Avalon Waterways ship to cruise the Lower Danube. Our stateroom was well appointed with plenty of room for our clothes and toiletries. One wonderful feature is that the very comfortable bed faces the floor to ceiling sliding glass doors so you are always enjoying the scenery that is floating by.

Bucharest Romania

Bill and Deborah at Athenee Palace HiltonArrived in Bucharest Romania just in time to join our fellow travelers on a walking food tour of the city. The Balkan, Ottoman, French and Russian influences were evident in the many foods we sampled.

Bucharest has many beautiful buildings which are in stark contrast to the edifices built during the Communist era.
