Sitting in the back of a taxi driving past Piata Universitatii this morning, we couldn’t help but notice that there is now a large fibreglass giraffe’s head on the roundabout in the middle of the square.
Well, the why only becomes apparent when you head down into the Piata Universitatii underpass. For there will you find the rest of the giraffe:
It’s all part of a campaign to promote the reopening of the country’s best museum (about to get even better) the Grigore Antipa Museum of National History, slated for July 1st.
As regular readers will know, however, this is not the first time that we have been told about the reopening of the museum.
This time, however, it looks for real.
We phoned them this afternoon and they said that although it was unlikely they would reopen on July 1st, the museum would definitely be open this summer ‘around July 15th.’
After two years of renovations, all we can say is that we hope the wait will turn out to be worth it.
