For a few days now, Bucharest has become the Balkan Capital of Lights. Several parks in the Romanian capital have turned into enchanted places which are visited every evening by thousands of tourists who come to see the works of art and light installations created by great artists from around the world.
This is the fourth edition of the Lights On light festival, but it’s the first time it takes place in Bucharest. Therefore, the citizens of Bucharest as well as the tourists who are here these days have the chance to go on one of the most beautiful journeys of the year, the journey of light.
“We like to think that light heals, because it has done it many times for us and for all those who have had the chance to encounter it. It heals thoughts, feelings and states, even if just for a few moments. Every light installation present in the exhibition tells a story, a story in which most of us find ourselves most of the time. In them we find moments, memories, persons, or we simply find those few moments of complete silence we needed as the light envelops and embraces us. Then we inhale and we exhale”, say the organizers of the Lights On festival.
