Bucharest
Take a trip, fly with Austrian Airlines to Bucharest, and arrive at one of the airports conveniently located just north of the city. The city's comprehensive public transportation system is one of the most expansive in Europe. It is easy to traverse within Bucharest by rail, bus, and trolley. The city is located on the bank of the Dambovita River. The beautiful Cismigia Gardens and other public parks are a primary source of public recreation. Bucharest has such a history of cosmopolitan culture and stunning architecture that it has been affectionately called "Little Paris". Despite the destruction of wars and natural disasters, Bucharest still has much medieval, neoclassical, and art nouveau architecture as well as contemporary structures. Calea Victoriei is a lovely scenic historical street. Other landmarks include the Arch of Triumph and Cantacuizino Palace, once a private residence, now a public museum.

Arcade
At the Arcade dining is truly an experience. There is no innovative combination that the chef shies. He never fails to surprise the palates of gourmets who fill the restaurant night after night: Liver pâté with pistachios, tuna sashimi salad, dorado, filet of lamb, and to top it all off, chamomile crème brûlée. The ingredients are local, the inspiration Italian and Asian. The atmosphere is at once chic and cosy. The restaurant recalls a southern hacienda: large arches connect the bright, white rooms. Here a small column, there a few rosettes and stucco. The lovely wooden floor makes for a warm contrast and the whole is flooded by light from the rounded arched windows. Dinner at the Arcade is wonderful. When the weather permits, try to get a table on the attractive terrace. For an exclusive experience, park at the supervised parking lot and then receive your guests in one of the individual dining rooms - but remember to reserve ahead.

Rozalb de Mura
The Rozalb de Mura label was launched in 2006 and ever since customers have wondered about the name that combines the words for 'rose' and 'blackberry'. That is meant to signal an scintillating and creative mix. Designer Olah Gyarfas is himself a mix of equal parts Hungarian and Romanian. He takes an interest not only in fashion but promotes an exchange between artists, musicians, and other creative people from all over the world. The concept works: Rozalb de Mura is a lively showcase with a wealth of fresh, imaginative creativity that you will try hard to find elsewhere. Shop, showroom, and exhibition space all rolled into one, no limits here as long as the line is aesthetically pure and the artistic claim ambitious. The outfits are made for today's yuppy. And especially if you are among those who absolutely reject this distinction, then you should have a look inside. Here you find fashion of the day after tomorrow. Just the thing for exhibition openings, graphic artists, writers, artists, club nights-out, or DJs. Most of it is in black and at last there is men's wear too.

City Centre
Anyone looking for something resembling old town quarters in Bucharest, is most likely to discover them between Calea Victoriei and Bulevardul Ion C. Bratianu. The streets may be a bit run-down, but exude more charm and character than the broad boulevards with their bombastic architecture. The many small and larger bars in and around Smardan and Selani streets offer plenty of vantage points for watching the goings-on in the pedestrian zone. The central location makes this a perfect place to choose a café or bar as jumping-off point or rest stop when sightseeing. You can have a snack or full meal here, and in the evening the district is a favourite for going out. You can conveniently reach many sights on foot from here. And nearby Piata Unirii is a public transport hub.

Suter Inn
Opinions are split on the rooms' decor that tries to impress with kitschy red and gold braid. Either you find it fantastic or dreadful, there's nothing in between. There is no dispute however about the staff. Their friendliness and warmth make a stay at the Suter Inn relaxing and enjoyable. With just 16 rooms and one apartment of course they can afford to take time for their guests.The building was constructed in 1900 by an architect by the name of Suter. The house was restored to its former glory in 2003. The hotel is located not in the busy centre of town, but in a quiet neighbourhood not far from Piata Unirii and parliament.A night in a double room starts from 43.50 euro.
