Retired after almost 35 years in the United States Navy, Rear Admiral David F. Baucom is a naval aviation supply officer and a designated joint specialty officer. As a RADM, David Baucom traveled throughout the world, and especially enjoys spending time in Bucharest, Romania.
Bucharest, the capitol of Romania, offers visitors a wealth of historic and cultural attractions. If you are planning a trip to Bucharest, consider touring the following attractions.
– The Palace of Parliament. One of the largest buildings in the world, this government building was established by dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. It is a marvel of modern architecture, and a testament to the dictator’s infamous ambitions.
– The Romanian Athenaeum. The mid-sized concert hall seats just over 600 people, and has hosted world-class music festivals. It features neoclassical design, and the interior is truly glamorous.
– The Stavropoleos Monastery, also known as the Stavropoleos Church. Visitors who would like to participate in mass have opportunities to do so three times each day, and other tourists can marvel at the Brancovenesc architecture and 8,000 volume library.
