Bucharest’s February Events

Hello February!
As usual, we have a few celebrations for February, this month we have a lot of exhibitions and theater going on.

19 Feb. Constantin Brâncuși national day:
(February 19, 1876 – March 16, 1957) was a Romanian sculptor, painter and photographer.
Considered a pioneer of modernism, one of the most influential sculptors of the 20th-century, Brâncuși is called the patriarch of modern sculpture.
As a child, he displayed an aptitude for carving wooden farm tools. Formal studies took him first to Bucharest, then to Munich, then to the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris from 1905 to 1907.

24 feb. Dragobetele the Romanian version of Valentine’s day.
The legend has it that Dragobete was the son of Baba Dochia, which stands for the main character in the myth related to spring arrival and the end of the harsh winter.
Due to his endless kindness, he was chosen to be the Guardian of Love.
The day is particularly known as “the day when the birds are betrothed”.
On this day, considered locally the first day of spring, boys and girls gather vernal flowers and sing together.
It is a common belief in some parts of Romania that, during this celebration, stepping over a partner’s foot leads to the dominant role in the relationship.

Now let’s see what cool things we can attend in Bucharest in February.
