    This reporter put his lens on the negative and minimizes the beautiful and the historical things found in the country, he diminishes and says mean things. This has a derogatory feel, especially the stray dogs which is a great insult to the Romanian people after the stupid movie made by that stupid hateful Hungarian director and shown thought the world.

    His English accent sucks as well, he is probably of a lower class in his own country.

    Very mean statements for a historical city. Shame on those who try to hurt it, and by the way we don't care about hate and snobbery. If you don't like it GO TO YOUR HOME and leave Romania alone.

    The changes in Bucharest the last couple years are remarkable. Today most of the streets this tour visits have changed almost beyond recognition.

    Thank you for this ,you should make a new video.Bucharest developed so much since then. The city is much more cleaner now , we made the Basarab Bridge , the Sky Tower , remade the Old City , we have a series of modern buldings in "Piata Victoriei" , AFI Palace Mall in Cotroceni and we have a Delta in the center of Bucharest wich is called "Vacaresti Delta" . This makes Bucharest look kind of sad , maybe because its filmed in autumn.

    In 1989, Romania was the second poorest country in Europe, after Albania….

    Nowadays, they hold a better place in this ranking….

    ……since as a result of the dissolution of the Soviet Union and Yugoslavia some new countries appeared on the map which are poorer than them ..
