Where Is Bucharest, Romania?

The capital and largest city of Romania, Bucharest is located in the southeast of the country, on the banks of the Dâmbovita River, less than 60 kilometers north of the Danube River and the Bulgarian border.

What Is Bucharest Known For?

Bucharest takes the concept of a European metropolis to the next level by incorporating all the best parts of the continental capitals and blending them together into one buzzing city. Once known as the “Little Paris of the East,” Bucharest gives birth to its own brand of quasi-Parisian charm with its elegance, sophistication, and class, whilst adding its own unique Romanian flavor with a diverse collection of hidden cafes, ritzy art galleries, elegant restaurants, and trendy bars.

Popular Attractions in Bucharest

  • Palace of the Parliament: The world’s second largest building in the world, Palace of the Parliament is an architectural colossus. Winning many plaudits throughout its time from the heaviest building in the world to the kitschiest décor, Palace of the Parliament is certainly a sight to be seen. With over four million square feet and one thousand rooms, the Palace of the Parliament is the home of the Romanian Parliament, the senate, the chamber of deputies, three museums, and an international conference center.
  • Cișmigiu Gardens: Opened in 1847 and the city’s oldest public gardens, Grădina Cișmigiu covers around 16 hectares right in the city center. The most central of the city's public gardens, Cișmigiu is a haven of lawns, trees, flowers, and lakes. Its romantic winding paths shaded by lush green trees are perfect for a stroll, making it an oasis of tranquility in the middle of the bustling capital.
  • Stavropoleos Monastery: Located in the Old Center, Stavropoleos Monastery was built in 1724 in Brâncovenesc style — a mix of Byzantine, Renaissance, Ottoman, and Baroque architecture. Famed for its choir, this Christian Orthodox nunnery, whose welcoming patio is bordered by red geraniums, also has a great collection of over 8,000 religious and music books. Discover the tiny church that is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful religious monuments in the city. Tucked between the imposing buildings of the Old Town, this monastery certainly packs a punch in its religious symbolism, age, and beauty.

Popular Destinations Near Bucharest

  • Brasov: All fairytale cobbles and bohemian cafes, Brasov is more enchanting than one could imagine. Gothic spires sit alongside a large Hollywood-style sign while Soviet blocks are placed next to medieval watchtowers. Descend onto the streets and you’ll discover baroque-style buildings and elegant cafes. Amongst its pastel-hued streets, there beats the song of legends from the romantic dalliances of Vlad the Impaler to a beautiful noble lady rising from her grave to the unexpectedly true tale of a bear wandering into a main square.

Best Neighborhoods in Bucharest

  • Old Town: The Old Town of Bucharest is one of the youngest “Old Towns” in the world with an age of less than five years. However, despite the name, the charm, youthful zest, and unexpected beauty of this little corner of the city cannot be argued against. Streets of bars, restaurants, kebab shops, and pumping music are all housed in 17th century grand buildings, while locals and tourists alike descend on the Bucharest library, Carturesti Carusel.
