Bucharest is one of Europe’s most well hidden secrets, discovered by more and more travellers who find tempting both the cheap air tickets to Bucharest and the city itself. Situated across River Dâmbovița’s banks, this often overlooked city has it all; museums, galleries, bars and restaurants, beautiful architecture and a great deal of interesting history. Organise your trip and book your accommodation in one of the numerous cheap hotels in Bucharest and meet the capital of Romania, a city with heart and character!
Bucharest is the capital of Romania and was once known as a bombing target of World War II, a victim of the harsh regime of "Conducător" Ceaușescu and a hero of the Romanian Revolution in 1989.
One would expect that the city would be in ruins by now, but Bucharest knows how to survive. Bucharest now stands restored and reborn, forming a great part in the European puzzle of travel destinations.
“Bucur” in Romanian means “joy”!Medieval architecture and baroque palaces, museums and galleries, theatres and parks, friendly locals and a large student population, the list of the reasons why you should visit Bucharest is endless – and all on a budget!
Bucharest’s international airport (Aeroportul Internaţional Henri Coandă) is located 17 kilometres away from the city centre and can be reached by railway and buses No. 780 and 783.
Getting around Bucharest
Bucharest’s public transportation network consists of metro (4 lines), buses, tramways and trolleys. Fares start at 1.30 RON and minimum taxi fare is 1.40 RON.
Start your day in Bucharest at the city’s historic centre (Lipscani), extending between River Dâmbovița and the Calea Vicotiei district.
This part of the city represents the medieval trade hub of Bucharest and, though it was originally planned to be brought down by Ceaușescu, this – fortunately – never happened. The area of the Old Town is lined with restaurants and little cafes, antique markets and boutiques and is a very popular spot for tourists.
Bucharest’s modern centre can be found in Piaţa Universitatii, the University Square, where you’ll see:
- the School of Architecture of Bucharest University
- the National Theatre of Bucharest and
- the Bucharest Museum (Şuţu Palace)
Piaţa Revoluţiei, on the other hand has a wholly different energy and atmosphere to it, full of elegant buildings and impressive palaces, museums and churches:
- Bucharest’s Royal Palace now houses the National Museum of Art (Muzeul National de Arta) with interesting collections of Romanian, Italian, Dutch and French art
- The Orthodox Kretzulescu Church is built in the traditional Romanian renaissance style and is really impressive
- The Romanian Athenaeum is the circular neoclassical building hosting most of Bucharest’s greatest concerts and performances, also being the home of the "George Enescu" Philharmonic Orchestra.
Walk up the Spirii hill, above the city level, to see the imposing Palace of the Romanian Parliament. Built during the Ceaușescu era, it has 3,100 rooms spread into 3 floors and is the world’s second largest building of its kind, after the USA Pentagon!
If you’d like to know more on Bucharest’s history, you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to visit the National Museum of Romanian History (Muzeul Naţional de Istorie a României). Highlights include interesting Romanian collections of artefacts and archaeological items found across the country.
Visit the Kiseleff district, at the city’s northern part, to see the Triumph Arch of Bucharest (Arcul de Triumf). Constructed in 1922 in memory of the World War I Romanian soldiers, it was rebuilt in 1935 in granite.Bucharest’s official language is Romanian.
