Romanian culture in all its glory
Would you like to travel to a city brimming with culture? Book a flight to Bucharest and walk down Revolution Square, unwind in Cişmigiu Gardens and visit the Stavropoleos Church. Bucharest is a stately city with many broad avenues, impressive palaces and beautiful parks such as Herăstrău Park, where you can picnic, walk and roller skate. Bucharest is definitely worth a visit!
A wealth of culture
Bucharest has numerous interesting museums, many of which are housed in former palaces. The National Museum of Art, for instance, is housed in the former Royal Palace and for that reason alone it is worth a visit. The Village Museum, one of Europe’s largest open-air museums, will give you a good idea of rural life in Romania. Another sight is the Arcul de Triumf, a Romanian version of the French Arc de Triomphe. Bucharest is an ideal destination for a cultural weekend holiday and a perfect starting point for a longer vacation in Romania. Treat yourself: book a flight to Bucharest now!
The various districts in Bucharest
A walk down Calea Victoriei, Bucharest’s oldest street, will lead you past a number of the city’s best-known attractions, such as Revolution Square, the magnificent Ateneul Român concert hall and the Cantacuzino Palace. Lipscani, a medieval district that used to be Bucharest’s main commercial quarter, has a more intimate atmosphere. You’ll find charming boutiques and galleries along its cobbled streets. At night, this district has a vibrant nightlife, so booking a hotel in this area is always a good plan.

ARTS & CULTURE
No other neighbourhood in Bucharest has undergone as much change in the past few decades as Lipscani. Until the 1980s, this part of the old city centre, named after one of its main streets, had fallen into serious disrepair. Today, the neighbourhood is the vibrant centre of the Romanian art scene and a popular nightlife destination.
ARTS & CULTURE
A building with 12 floors, 270 metres long and 245 metres wide; 48 metres visible above the ground and 15 metre buried below. It’s not often you come across a building larger than the Palace of the Parliament in Bucharest. When Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceauşescu ordered the construction of this extremely luxurious structure, a large section of the historic city centre of Bucharest had to pay the price. An entire neighbourhood, stadium, churches, convents and synagogues were levelled to make room.
