Bucharest deserves a place on any bucket list
The city has an impressive history, is rich in green spaces, culture, celebrated architecture, and art. Everywhere you look, a wild mix of architectural styles – an eclectic mix of Parisian-inspired buildings by French architects, socialist classicist layer cake buildings, plattenbau and postmodern architecture.
For city breakers, the wallet goes a long way in Bucharest – undoubtedly one of Europe’s major nightlife and dancefloor capitals, but also for fans of antique and vintage shopping, as well as for upscale luxury shops and labels. The Calea Dorobanti area, home to some of Bucharest’s best shopping, is also packed with trendy cafés, bars and restaurants with both international and local flavors.
