Travel to Bucharest

Bucharest It is, after Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, the second cheapest European capital, so in these times where money is scarce than ever, it is undoubtedly one of the best places to visit. To give you a rough idea, with what it costs you a day in London or Paris you would spend 3 days in Bucharest. It is clear that it is not one of the great destinations dreamed of by any tourist, but it is a great stranger who has many things to contribute and whoever visits Bucharest is very satisfied with everything they have found there.

One of the essential places to visit in bucharest It is the Palace of the Parliament, which is the seat of the Romanian government and was built during the communist era. It is the second largest administrative building in the world, second only to the United States Pentagon. From there you can go to Arch of Triumph, clearly inspired by what you can see in Paris since almost all the monuments, houses and buildings that were built in the Romanian capital before the communist era have a clear French mark, that is why Bucharest is known as the Paris of the East.

Another very nice building to visit is the Athenaeum, in the Lipscani neighborhood, a great European heritage and home to the city's Philharmonic Orchestra, so if you are going to be there try to go to a concert because it will be an unforgettable experience. In the surroundings you can visit the historic center of the city, where you can find plenty of antique shops and several bars and restaurants that make this neighborhood the best to enjoy the nightlife in Bucharest. If you have time, stop by Romanian Peasant MuseumIt will only take you a couple of hours, and through Curtea Veche, the ruins of the ancient palace of Dracula himself.
