Bucharest snowkiting fields

Bucharest is surrounded by crops fields which this winter got a generous layer of snow which lasted until spring came. Basically you can use any open field with no obstacles where the snow is good.
There are a few areas where kiters gather like Sindrilita or Mihailesti. We had a few fun sessions this winter in these locations.
The snow melted now as the temperatures got higher so we’ll move on to the water soon.
