About Bucharest

Intrigue, fascination, wonder, three words which offer a glimpse into the aura surrounding Bucharest, the capital of Romania. This is a stylish, bustling, and dynamic metropolis that can truly surprise the first-time, cosmopolitan visitor. During the interwar period, the city was nicknamed the "Paris of the East." However, today's cityscape is largely dominated by the typical socialist architecture, the result of dictator Nicolae Ceausescu's savage redevelopment plans during the 1980s. Yet, despite this bleak period, Bucharest emerged, Phoenix-like, from the ashes of her past glory to reclaim her rightful stature. Having survived two world wars, the Communist dictatorship, and several earthquakes, today this self-sufficient and proud city has completely reinvented itself. Significantly remodelled during the nineteenth century, Bucharest juxtaposes lifestyles and traditions that cannot but enrapture the discerning traveller. Hidden among a tangle of concrete, apartment blocks are wonderful art nouveau buildings, great museums, ancient churches, lush parks, lakes, and elegant boulevards. Bucharest's culinary scene is equally worth getting excited about. Moreover, the city has very few contenders in the region concerning nightlife, the vibrant and long parties of which should not be missed. Much of Bucharest's uniqueness lies hidden from plain sight and waits to be discovered by the patient and curious visitor. Artsy garden oases, tucked behind crumbling facades, and colorful cafes holding their own mysterious charm will certainly make you fall in love with this city!
