by building flamboyant homes, many of them inspired by global
landmarks



Flamboyant: A house inspired by Moscow's Bolshoi Theatre
complete with the three horses with a carriage on the roof.
The so-called gypsy capital of the world that has become
Europe's most unlikely tourist destination



American dream: Locals walk past a home designed like the
U.S. Capitol building in the Moldovan town of Soroca



Palatial: The town has taken on a landscape all of its own after
