Those in search of flowers and in need of plenty of choices – and of lower prices than the round the corner flower shop offers – should visit the George Cosbuc flower market. Not many foreigners know about it, and it is not that well known among Romanians either. But it is a gem. Located just opposite The Ark, on Uranus street corner with Calea Rahovei, this flower market is the place where flower shops owners from across Bucharest come to buy merchandise, and re-sell it a couple of times more expensive in the city. A must visit even if you just want to take some pictures! Best hours and flowers are very early in the morning – at 5AM.
