Bucharest marked its 553 years of documented existence with giant fireworks tuned to music, in the Constitution Square. The ending ceremony followed four days of street theater shows, during which some 20 groups with musicians, circus and theater artists made the capital of Romania more jolly for locals and tourists.

After the acrobatic performance of Fura dels Baus (Spain), the largest civil building in the world was colored by the lights of fireworks. On the Parliament Palace (House of the People) were projected several messages with lights and lasers, as some two thousand people and the participating groups witnessed the fireworks exploding. Among acrobats on stilts and giant puppets were also 250 dancers that earlier took part in the samba parade by several dancing schools in the country.
