The union square is one of the biggest places at București, Romania. It breathes the spirit of socialist times and was in former times a giant marketplace. People from all of Walachia came here to sell their goods. A reminder of these times is the restaurant Hanu’ lui Manuc north of the square where foreigners could eat and rent a room. Still today a lot of shopping malls are surrounding the Piața Unirii.
The Piața Unirii is today a transport hub with its own metro station and several bus and tramway stops. The area is partially covered by a green park und people get here in sometimes because of some large fountains. They are well orchestrated and illuminated at light. But don’t think that you can use it for a bath: there is a security service keeping you from doing silly things.
