Bucharest (“Bucureşti” in Romanian) is the Capital and the largest city of Romania, with a population of more than 2 million people. Thus it is the 6th largest city in the European Union. It also has a history that dates back to the Medieval Ages.

owadays, Bucharest is a living testimony of Romania’s tumultous history, its eclectic architecture being the biggest clue in this sense. Byzantine, Renaissance, Venetian Classical, Art Nouveau or Art Deco buildings are trying to coexist with Communist era type of apartment blocks and Contemporary glass towers. This continuous reinventation of the Bucharest landscape is visible if you start from the Old City (“Centrul Vechi”) and reach the outskirts of the Capital. You can also see its cosmopolitanism by watching the different styles of clothing of Bucharest’s inhabitants or the very distinctive venues and bars you can find in our Capital, that can take you not only to Paris, but also to New York, London, Madrid, the Middle East or the Rural parts of Romania.
