The Old Arch, Botosani, Romania (source: Despre Botosani)
“Boasting a rich cultural life, the city of Botoşani has long produced major personalities in the science and culture. Botoşani natives like Mihai Eminescu, Nicolae Iorga, Stefan Luchian, and Octav Onicescu have become major figures in diverse disciplines, and many have distinct claims to relevance not just within Romania, but on a worldwide level.”
(What does irritate me in this video is the propagandist tone of the film that flatters local government efforts. Let’s get real: there are more things need to be done for this city to become what Botosani was once.)
Unfortunately, the history of this place has a sad tradition to banish many of its sons.
