Piata Obor

  Piata Obor     09 Nov 2018

Bucharest's biggest market. Obor’s main market hall – a once elegant, modernist building known as Halele Obor which has seen better days – was built in the 1940s but is these days a far cry from the bustling place it was in its heyday. It is now the ground floor of the new building opposite where you should go for your fruit and vegetables, while upstairs you will find fresh meat, spices, wine and fish. Between the two buildings you will find a vast array of costermongers selling all sorts of goods from pots and pans to flowers and plants, cheap clothes and shoes to miracle cures for gout. Don't forget to eat a couple of mici: Obor serves up some of the best in the city.

"Watch your wallet"is entirely sound advice. The one time I went there, wearing a pair of khaki-style combat shorts, I looked down to find an urchin wrist-deep in one of my thigh pockets. This can happen in any big market, of course, but it just so happens that in Obor was the only time it did to me.

I think 'watch your wallet' is absolutely fair comment. This is my first time in Bucharest and the first time in Eastern Europe (been to all the capitals) that I have felt the need to check my belongings every minute.

"Watch your wallet"? Seriously? This is really offensive and stupid. Do you think we're talking about a jungle?
