The country’s capital and the biggest city of Romania, also known as ‘Little Paris’. The label was coined between the two world wars, thanks to its beautiful belle époque architecture.

Today’s Bucharest is a mixture of styles and cultures. From beautiful boulevards to stroll down, to impressive museums to visit, vast parks to relax in, sophisticated restaurants to delight your palate, and modern malls to shop in – the city has it all.
