Set in the historic and dynamic capital of Romania, Bucharest hotels are surrounded by fashionable cafés, sprawling parks and a dramatic blend of Belle Époque and Stalinist architecture. Bucharest is also a very safe place for tourists to visit, with locals known to make visitors feel very welcome.
Palaces and parks
The city is renowned for its wide boulevards lined with trees and its Belle Époque architecture. There are a host of magnificent buildings in Bucharest including the Arcul de Triumf, based on the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, and the enormous Palace of the Parliament, the largest civilian building in the world. The Palace of the Savings Bank, spectacularly floodlit at night, features one of the most striking Neoclassical facades in the city and is well worth seeing after sunset. For a glimpse into Bucharest’s communist era, the imposing Press House is a commanding symbol of the regime.
There is plenty of greenery around Bucharest where you can relax after a day in the bustling city. The Carol I Park features a striking memorial to the communist revolution while the Cismigui Garden, Bucharest's oldest park, is a picturesque place to hire a rowing boat and spend an afternoon on the lake.
Museums and galleries
Bucharest is packed with museums, including the family friendly Grigore Antipa Natural History Museum, the mammoth National Art Museum – housed in the 19th-century Royal Palace – and the Museum of the Romanian Peasant – offering a fascinating look at how the city has developed since the 18th century, including its time under the control of a communist regime. Bucharest also offers hop-on hop-off bus tours, as well as bicycle tours led by a local guide who will lead you through the back streets and lesser-known parts of the city. Free walking tours are also very popular.
Eating, drinking and dancing
Bucharest boasts some of the best restaurants in the world, with affordable meals covering every type of cuisine. The Micul Paris restaurant in the old part of the city has a relaxed atmosphere and serves excellent food. There’s also the ARTIST restaurant and Beca’s Kitchen, both serving mouthwatering homemade food. Bucharest is also a great city for entertainment with live music. The Art Jazz Club near the National Theatre attracts a diverse mix of students, artists and musicians. If you’re looking for daytime events, there are festivals throughout the city nearly every month in the summer plus the BRD Nastase Tiriac Tennis Trophy every April.
