Overlooking to the northern side of Bucharest, an explosion of light showing a modern city, a new face arising after the fall of communism. Skyscrapers abundant in light show opulence of a city part of European Union, caught into the big movement of globalization.
Opposing to the center of Bucharest, the crowd which animates the life of multinational companies in north moves to the center and this side of the Bucharest falls in silence.

The neighbourhood bear the communist influence almost wherever one would go. The grey nuances of rough block of flats now turn into pillars of discrete lightening. The neighbourhood lies in light and shadows, gathering in the same place the stories of their inhabitants.
