This old abandoned chimney located in Pitesti is the second highest structure (280 meters) in Romania.
The part (4:05) where he walks across the chimney on an old metal girder is insane.
70,000 packets of Ukrainian cigarettes were lodged inside these tree trunks to be smuggled in Romania.

A motorized wheelbarrow “stretcher” was used during a soccer game in Romania to carry an injured player off the pitch
Last Thursday was the most shocking day for the Parliament of Romania. The session was overshadowed by TV engineer, the father of two children Adrian Sobaru who decided to jump from 7-meters-high balcony in protest over government budget cuts that had affected his family. He was wearing “you-killed-our-children’s-future” t-shirt, but luckily his injures weren’t life–threatening. When he was taken out on a stretcher to the emergency, Adrian continued shouting the word “feedom”.
Seeing Adriana Iliescu and her 5-year-old daughter Eliza walking hand in hand, you are more likely to believe that they are a great grandparent and a granddaughter. Adriana, a writer from Romania, delivered Eliza at the age of 66, and she is 72 now. She became the oldest mother in the world in 2005 thanks to IVF.
People call Adriana granny for fun, but she got used to it. And what would you say if a 72-year-old woman delivers another child?
An interesting experiment took place in a Romanian prison for women. The inmates received a total of 6 Canon PowerShot cameras and were taught how to use them. During the first two months, 14.000 photos were taken!
This unique experiment led to the superb photos you can enjoy through this post.
Edit: These are supposedly poor neighborhoods of Slovakia. Thanks a lot to our visitors who helped us to get the facts straight :)
