To this day, Bucharest’s skyline is dominated by the sharp, weird angles of the Hotel Intercontinental. In the 1970s, the hotel was a symbol of Romania’s maverick status between East and West, but the hotel plunged to the depths of sleaze in the last years of the Nicolae Ceaușescu regime in the late 1980s. These days, it’s back to being a decent four-star hotel. Photo by Mark Baker.
