Grand Cafe van Gogh – A piece of Holland in Romania

"Grand Cafe van Gogh" is one of my favorite places in the Old centre of Bucharest. Because of its mint tea and appeltart, it reminds me of Amsterdam...

About me

About me
I have been living in Bucharest my whole life except for a couple of years where I lived in Amsterdam. I’ve been back in Bucharest since December 2012.

I am a marketing person and I also own Zestre, a t-shirt brand with handmade traditional Romanian stitches applied on them.

I am a food enthusiast, I am into finding and trying out new places, I love traveling, coffee, interior design and wandering a city's streets, discovering architecture and not just that.

Why Bucharest?
I love Bucharest because it's a vibrant city, I would dare to say even chaotic because of its mixture of East and West: there's a huge influence from the Ottoman rule, there's the "Little Paris" feeling of the city and you can also sense a communist flavor in it. All in all it's an ordered chaos.

It is great to be part of a city that is constantly changing, there's always something new happening, from new areas to go out in, to new bars, clubs and lots of events. A lot of old buildings are either restored or reused for different purposes. It's really hard to get bored in Bucharest :).
