Dragos Rapeanu – Lacul Morii

www.dragosrapeanu.com and his blog

“Constructed under the communist regime of Nicolae Ceausescu to prevent floodings in Bucharest, Lacul Morii (Mill’s Lake) was built over a cemetery and a church. Being on the periphery of Bucharest the lake and the small island that lies in the middle are somewhat hidden, making it easy for the authorities to ignore it until the next elections come and new promises are made. Inspite its’ degradation, piles of trash, and the fact that it has witnessed from drug addicts to mafia style murders and rapes, Lacul Morii remains a huge attraction for the people living near it. Especially during the summer people come here in huge numbers to swim, fish, take a stroll at sunset or to have a picnic, ignoring all the negative aspects.”
