We stayed one night in Bucharest ahead of a much longer holiday in Romania. These images include: the Romanian Athenaeum; the Museo Nationale George Enescu; and the Kretzulescu Church.
Lisbon feels and looks like a city being rebuilt. Buildings, roads, monuments and more are being reconstructed, repaired or replaced. I had to work hard to find images that did not contain cranes, diggers or scaffolding…. These shots include: the Elavador de Santa Justa; the Praco do Comercio (with a crane in the background); Santa Engracia church; and even a beautiful piece of Lalique jewellery from the Museu Calouste Gulbenkian.
The construction of this extraordinary fortress, built in the shape of a five-pointed star, started in 1626. It is one of the best preserved fortresses of its type. Although it is still used by the military, it also serves as a beautiful and interesting public park. Images include: the moat and rampart; the windmill; the Rows; and St. Albans Church.
