Bucharest used to have lots of movie theaters - today, many of them are in bad, run-down shape and have been replaced by glitzy dolby-surround cineplexes inside malls.
The second part of our city tour on Sunday took us via University square, from where we took the metro to Aviatorilor (at Charles de Gaulle Square) to the Arcul de Triumf, through Herastrau Park to the Gara de Nord train station, and back via Piata Romana down to the Palace of the Parliament, making this 28.2 km walk a bit longer than yesterday's (just like Bulevardul Unirii, Bucharest's Champs-Élysées, which is longer than the original).

After having partied with work colleagues from Romania at the 1&1 Winterfest in Bucharest all night, Thomas and me got up early to see some of the city: A 27.2 km walk taking us from Piata Unirii to the Palace of the Parliament, through the old town, and via Calea Victorei to Piata Romana and back towards the hotel. The last time I had the chance to see downtown Bucharest was in 2005 - see here for the pictures I took then.
