What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when someone says Romania? The region of Transylvania and Dracula? Maybe Timisoara and shopping? And what about Bucharest?
If you haven’t visited the capital of Romania before, it’s about time you did it. Paris of the East, as it was called before World War II, brought together the old town tradition and the 21st-century art. The nickname is owed to the elegance of this beautiful city. Its architecture shows features of many trends, such as neo-classical and art deco. Bucharest is also the biggest city in this country and its largest centre when it comes to culture, industry, and economy. It’s also ranked 6th on the list of the most populous cities of the European Union.
The humid continental climate allows you to enjoy all the seasons in Bucharest. Summers are warm and can be very hot from time to time, while winters are snowy and can sometimes be very windy. If you don’t mind the humidity and rain, the temperatures are pretty pleasant in spring and autumn.
Bucharest is the right place to enjoy cultural monuments and landmarks. It’s home to the world’s biggest Parliament building, built in the 1980s. Other landmarks worth visiting are Arcul de Triumf, which looks a lot like the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, the Memorial of Rebirth, the National Museum of Art of Romania, the Romanian Athenaeum, and many others. Apart from these amazing sights, you’ll also enjoy spending your free time in gorgeous parks of Bucharest, that make up for the lack of green areas in some neighbourhoods.
