New York Post has a great article about Bucharest, a city that is turning from Little Paris to Little Hollywood.

Some excerpts:

Between the two world wars, Bucharest was known as "Little Paris."Today, domed opera houses, restored medieval churches and immaculately landscaped parks pop up alongside spacious tree-lined boulevards that reminded me of the Champs Elysee, especially given the replica of the Arch de Triomphe in the leafy embassy district.

Historic Lipscani is a beautiful area of narrow cobble streets dating back to the 15th century. The district, once crumbling, is now filling up with chic cafes, restaurants and boutiques reminiscent of the Left Bank. Much of the area is still a building site, but the new Romania won't be built in a day.

But if anything is putting Bucharest on the international map, it's the film industry. Thanks to spectacular, nearby scenery, two major film studios in town - one dating back to the communist era - and skilled local film technicians working at cut-rate prices, Hollywood is moving in.

Bucharest as Little Hollywood? You better believe it.
