The stick potato of Bucarest

My roommates and I decided to spend the weekend in Bucharest.
Already knowing the city, I tried to do my best to show them the
most beautiful places of the city. Yes, but the problem is that
I'm not the best guide, and except the main tourist atractions,
shops and coffee, I don't know so much about the history of Bucharest.
To solve this problem, we decided to take part in a free guided
walking tour.

of a guide and visited the old city center. We discovered a lot of
Lipscani, The 17th century hostel Hanul lui Manuc, the famous
restaurant Caru cu bere, the beautiful church Stravropoleos, etc...

It's a memorial for the people killed during the revolution of 1989,
and this in the form of a marble obelisk on which is planted an iron
This work is apparently one of the most controversial of the capital
and the inhabitant of Bucarest call it "the potato on a stick"
This is probably the anecdote that struck us the most with my
roommates. We laughed all the night!
