Zilele Bucurestiului 2014 / Bucharest Days 2014

Zilele Bucurestiului 2014, sau mai bine zis anul in care Bucurestiul aniverseaza 555 ani de existenta 🙂 Batran, dar inca tanar comparativ cu alte capitale din lume 😉  Cum a petrecut Bucurestiul si locuitorii sai? Dans, cultura, ateliere, concerte, expozitii, plimbari, targuri si multe altele…

Cateva locatii s-au schimbat complet si s-au umplut de oameni in acest weekend. Secene uriase au fost amenajate in Piata Constitutiei, in Piata Universitatii si in Parcul Cismigiu (in parc, locatia unde s-au tinut evenimentele s-a numit „Hanul Cismigiu”), in centrul vechi rasunau melodiile de vals si tango atragand multimea catre niste dansatori superb si talentati.

Expozitii multe in diverse locatii, cea mai importanta fiind expozitia de la Biblioteca Nationala, reprezentand 555 carti postale cu Bucurestiul Vechi ( nu am avut inca ocazia sa o vad, dar tine toata luna septembrie, deci va promit ca revin cu un articol despre aceasta expozitie).

Un eveniment unic a fost seara de sambata din Piata Constitutiei unde s-a tinut evenimentul iMapping Bucharest, unde cladirea reprezentativa a orasului, si anume Casa Poporului, a fost „decorata” de lumini in zeci de feluri, superbe si spectaculoase. Si daca tot ne aflam in aceasta zona, trebuie sa va mentionez ca Fantanile Primaverii au fost tinute deschise special pentru Zilele Bucurestiului, primind ceva nou, si anume culori si muzica 🙂 Aceleasi fantani cu care poate erati obisnuiti acum viu colorate in verde, roz, mov, albastru, galben etc etc etc facandu-si treaba in continuu pe ritmul muzicii clasice. O initiativa faina a primariei, crearea unor fantani muzicale in capitala ( in sfarsit ).

Cel mai mare deliciu al festivalului (pentru mine) a fost finalizarea lucrarilor de restaurare a Hanului Gabroveni din centrul vechi, locatie ce va gazdui Societatea ArCuB de acum inainte 🙂 Si cu ocazia Zilelor Bucurestiului, portile acestui han au stat deschise pentru toti vizitatorii curiosi.

In Parcul Cismigiu s-a tinut un mare targ cu vanzari de tot ce va imaginati. Produse de decor, de uz casnic, mancare traditionala si multe multe muuuuulte dulciuri, haine traditionale si multe altele. Produsele acestea fiind aduse aici de mesteri din toata tara, unii fiind chiar alaturi de marfa lor si producand chiar mai multa pe loc. O placere sa vedem mesteri romani in actiune 🙂

Din pacate am ratat renumita „bataie cu flori” din Parcul Cismigiu. Prea multe evenimente simultan, prea putin timp :)) Distractie si voie buna peste tot 😀

La multi ani Bucuresti !

ENGLISH:

Bucharest Days 2014, or better said the year when the city of Bucharest celebrated 555 years of existence 🙂 Old, but still young compared to other capitals from around the world 😉 How did Bucharest and it’s inhabitants party? Dancing, culture, workshops, concerts, expo’s, tours, fairs and many others…

A few locations completely changed and filled with people this weekend. Huge scenes were raised in Constitutiei Square, Universitatii Square and Cismigiu Park ( in the park, the location where the events were held was called „Cismigiu Inn”), and in the old city center waltz and tango songs were drawing in the crowd toward amazing and talented dancers.

Expositions in diverse locations, the most important being the expo at the National Library, representing 555 postcards of old Bucharest ( i did not yet have the occasion to see it, but it will last all month, so i promise you i will come back with an article about it ).

An unique event was held saturday evening in Constitutiei Square where iMapping Bucharest was held, where the most representative building of the city, The House of Parliament, was „decorated” by lots of lights of all kind, amazing and unique. And since we are in the area, i must mention that the Spring Fountains were held open especially for Bucharest Days, receiving something new now: lights and color 🙂 The same fountains that maybe you were used to, now lively with colors and working to the sounds of classical music. O fine initiative of city hall ( finally ).

The biggest surprise of the festival ( for me at least) was the finish of restoration works on the Gabroveni Inn in the old city center, location that will now hold ArCuB society headquarters. And with the occasion of Bucharest Days, the gates to this amazing place were held open for all the curious visitors…

In Cismigiu Park there was a great trading fair held, where you could buy all that you can imagine. Decorum, household items, traditional food, lots and lots and lots of sweets, traditional clothes and much more. These products were brought here by craftsmen from all over the country, some actually working live to make more merchandise. A delight to see master craftsmen at work 🙂

Sadly i missed the renowned „flower fight” in Cismigiu Park. Too many events at the same time and too little time :)) Fun and good will all around 😀

A few photos and movies to follow…

Happy Birthday Bucharest !
