Some of you requested an event calendar for Bucharest, thank you for the request.
I think this is a great idea for tourists who want to know what they can do around the city this period.
I did not add all the events happening in the town this period, as it would be a long and at some point boring.
When I travel, I often stay out, not inside. I like to discover the “underground” life, what people do not necessarily name fanciness.
Great Union Day the national holiday in Romania, celebrated on 1 December, marking the unification of Transylvania, Besarabia, and Bucovina with the Romanian Kingdom in 1918. This holiday was declared after the Romanian Revolution and commemorates the assembly of the delegates of ethnic Romanians held in Alba Iulia, which declared the Union of Transylvania with Romania
Saint Nicholas Day ( Sf. Nicolae) Saint Nicholas Day celebrated on the 6th of Dec, in Western Christian countries, and December 19 in Eastern Christian countries on the Old Calendar.
In the eve of saint Nicolas, the children clean their boots before going to sleep, hoping that Saint Nicolas or “saint winter” how was called in the elder times, will bring them a small present.
Legend has it that the naughty children will receive a stick and coals for their naughtiness, and those who were good would receive nice presents, usually st. Nicolas brings sweets and candy, not big presents.
