Bucharest
Take a trip, fly with Austrian Airlines to Bucharest, and arrive at one of the airports conveniently located just north of the city. The city's comprehensive public transportation system is one of the most expansive in Europe. It is easy to traverse within Bucharest by rail, bus, and trolley. The city is located on the bank of the Dambovita River. The beautiful Cismigia Gardens and other public parks are a primary source of public recreation. Bucharest has such a history of cosmopolitan culture and stunning architecture that it has been affectionately called "Little Paris". Despite the destruction of wars and natural disasters, Bucharest still has much medieval, neoclassical, and art nouveau architecture as well as contemporary structures. Calea Victoriei is a lovely scenic historical street. Other landmarks include the Arch of Triumph and Cantacuizino Palace, once a private residence, now a public museum.

Patriarch's Palace
From Piata Unirii it is just a short walk up the small hill where the patriarch's residence is located. For fans of religious architecture, this excursion is a must. But even those who are less interesting in churches should wander up here. A few moments earlier you were surrounded by the hectic traffic crowding the broad boulevards, now you find yourself in a peaceful courtyard. If you crave even more quiet, enter the patriarch's church. The floor is covered with thick carpets, and the sanctuary's interior is suffused by gentle light shining through the stained glass windows. If you come at the right time, you can experience the rituals and chants of the faithful. Just a few hundred metres from the turbulent activity of the big city, you have seemingly been transported to a remote rural monastery. This is the place to kiss icons, and perhaps yourself be kissed by the muse.

Lacrimi si Sfinti
Mircea Dinescu is a well-known Rumanian writer. He works as a journalist and fell from favour during the Ceaușescu era for his socio-critical viewpoint. But that wouldn't be enough for him. That's why he was looking for 100 years-old recipes whose forgotten tastes he now reinterprets in his restaurant Lacrimi si Sfinti in the historic district of Bucharest. Dinescu's focus thereby lies on the revival of local culture. He uses regional ingredients and organic meat from small farms. The kitchen windows in his restaurant come from an abandoned house in the surrounding area and the door comes from a former pharmacy in a Romanian county. For his decoration the revolutionary has arranged 16,000 lego stones from Copenhagen and works by local artists. All this is well received in Bucharest. Just like the wines that are produced by Dinescu himself on his manor.
