If you get off the train at Bucharest's Gara de Nord and walk out of the front entrance, you will see (across the busy traffic) a park, flanked on the righthand side by Dinicu Golescu Boulevard. Some distance down this road there is a statue of Dinicu Golescu. Dinicu owned most of the land on which both the park and the boulevard are situated. Perhaps more importantly, in 1826 (or was it 1827?), he did something none of his fellow countrymen had ever done before: he published an account of his travels.
