Travelling to Romania

About Bucharest

Travel info

Bucharest, the Capital of Romania, is one of the most important and oldest cities in Europe, an important cultural, historical and economical center in Eastern Europe.

Here you can find several architecture styles from multiple historical periods, from the kingdom to the communist regimes to the modern times. Each era has left its mark on the city. Between 1900 and 1930 it was one of the most beautiful and modern cities in Europe, comparable to Paris, which is why most contemporaries called it “Little Paris”. 

The medieval substance of Bucharest was deeply affected over the years by destructions and fires. Furthermore, the city has tragically lost several monuments and touristic objectives, especially churches during the “urbanism” campaign started by Nicolae Ceaușescu.
The dictator ran bulldozers over one fifth of the city, a much larger area than the earthquake in 1977 had destroyed, razing countless old and perfectly functional buildings to the ground. Luckily, he didn’t have time to destroy everything – a walk through the older parts of the city reveal bits from the exuberant past that Bucharest has had.

It’s good to know when you visit Bucharest that, even though the city is in full development, it hasn’t really recovered from the trauma it suffered. Restorers and builders have renovated part of the beautiful houses of the Capital, but there is still a lot to be done.
From interesting tourist attractions to large and beautiful parks, Bucharest promises exciting objectives. To those who are looking for fun, the Old Town is full of cafés and pubs.

The Palace of Parliament

Famous for its impressive size, the Palace of Parliament is one of the most interesting buildings you should visit if in Bucharest. This grandiose building features a unique mix of architectural styles, combining the Romanian Style (Brâncovenesc) with influences of Renaissance, German and Baroque.
This is the second largest marble building in the world, after the Pentagon. It has a place in the Guinness Book of Records for being the largest administration building for civil use in the world, the most expensive administration building and the heaviest building.

The Old Town

The Old Town is without a doubt one of the fanciest and most beloved areas in Bucharest. It is a place filled with neo-classic and neo-baroque buildings. At the ground floors you can find many attractive terraces, café, restaurants and shops.
A walk along the winding and very populated streets in the Old Town gives you the impression that you’ve traveled through time and have found the Bucharest of old.

The Romanian Athenaeum is considered by some the most beautiful building in Bucharest due to its history, its neo-classical architecture and its impressive interior. It is currently used as a concert hall and is the seat of the “George Enescu” Philharmonic Orchestra.  
Calea Victoriei is one of the oldest and most important boulevards in Bucharest. It goes right through the middle of the city.
The Arch of Triumph is a symbol of Bucharest, a monument built to remember Romania’s victory in the First World War. The Arch of Triumph houses a little museum that is open to the public at certain times of the year.
Herăstrău Park is one of the most beautiful parks in Bucharest. It was built on the shores of Lake Herăstrău. This is a recreational area in the heart of the city where you can enjoy the nature. It has been also been declared a historical monument.
The National “Dimitrie Gusti” Village Museum is one of the biggest attractions in Bucharest. It is an open-air museum where you can see peasant households, community buildings and other elements reflecting the Romanian village culture from the 18th and 20th century.
The Museum of the Romanian Peasant holds the largest collection of traditional objects in Romania. Its collections comprise 100,000 ceramic objects, traditional clothing, fabrics, furniture, ironware and carpets. 
The “Grigore Antipa” Museum of Natural History houses over 2 million exhibits from zoological, paleontological, mineral and ethnological collections, as well as rocks. Its precious patrimony is a testament to the biodiversity, cultural diversity in and outside of Romania, as well as to the evolution and changes in climate and in the Earth’s crust. 
Cișmigiu Garden is the oldest public garden in Bucharest. It was built in the style of the English parks. Works ended in 1854. Without a doubt, the park is a place everybody loves – not only people from Bucharest, but also whoever passes through even for a short time. 
The Stavropoleos Church is one of the most beautiful in town. It was built in 1724 by the Greek monk Joannicius, during the Phanariot reign of prince Nicholas Mavrocordatos. The church is representative for its Wallachian Style, combining Ottoman and Western elements, together with traditional Romanian architecture forms. The inside is just as beautiful, with sculptures, paintings on wood and stone and frescos.
Manuc’s Inn (Hanul lui Manuc) is one of the best preserved old inns in Bucharest. It was built close to the year 1808 as a place where merchants coming through the area could rest. The inn is also one of the historical buildings in Bucharest. Today, Manuc’s Inn is used as a hotel, restaurant and wine cellar.
