Last week was grim.
It started raining on Monday and didn’t really stop until Friday afternoon. It was also windy and bloody cold. Not pleasant at all.
As if by magic however, the clocks went forward on Saturday night and it’s all change. Temperatures in the Romanian capital are set to soar this week (topping 25°C by Friday), marking very much the beginning of six months of summer.
It will rain of course: May and June are infamous for their brief yet powerful evening thunderstorms which can appear from nowhere, out of the bluest of blue skies. By and large though, we can now put the thick coats, the heavy boots and the hats and scarves away as the weather gets just hotter, and stays that way until the end of September.
Stand by for Bucharest at its very best.
