Communist Era Apartments Bucharest Romania

Communist Era Apartments Bucharest RomaniaYou see these everywhere in Eastern Europe. The communists were really into building blocks and blocks and blocks of apartments where all the apartments were identical. Personally, I don’t see a problem with it. It only makes sense to me. That type of sentiment is why I will never get elected to public office. I’m much too practical. This picture is of one building. This building is across the street from the train station in Bucharest. I thought it was a classic in terms of old communist block apartments. The place was run down, there was a lot of laundry in sight. From the outside it doesn’t look like a place that anyone would want to live in. I was told that when the communists were in power you lived wherever they told you to live and you were just happy that you weren’t in a place that was substantially worse. Sometimes we all have to be thankful for what we have, even if it’s not much. I still think that places like these are really practical. It’s too bad no one else does.
