Bucharest

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.

Sights in Bucharest

Sights in Bucharest
Carturesti
E-Book and Kindle are its enemies. Soft leather binding and paper rustle sounds two of its greatest strengths. It's about the book which holds its ground in our over-digitalised age. But offering reading material alone does not suffice anymore - it's about the overall experience. Bucharest knows the answer: Carturesti.   Carturesti is an empire with 13 bookstores in Romania. One of them is the Verona bookstore near the Patria Cinema in the centre of the capital, located within an aristocratic mansion next to the Magheru boulevard. Carturesti fans are particularly intrigued by the broad range of English literature and art books as well as its selection of CDs and DVDs. But they also come to see contemporary artworks. But that's still not it. They want to have a tea and grab a little bite - because the stay under the stucco vault could take a while, especially if they later move onto the terrace to sip an espresso and bury themselves in their favourite authors' books.

Johnson Hotel
The Howard Johnson has made a name for itself lately with its outstanding restaurants. There is the phenomenal Avalon, that will impress fusion fans both with its cuisine and design, And aficionados of Asian fare shouldn't miss the Japanese specialities at the BenihanaThe Hojo is an oasis of calm for business travellers: here you can relax not just your feet but your eyes as well. None of the Baroque pomp that is so favoured by Romanian hotels. Instead you will find minimalist design, and on closer inspection Zen-inspired niches and corners. The furniture was made-to-order by Ligne Roset, and the décor by no less than Ingo Maurer and Philippe Stark.A night in a double room starts at 129 euro.

Amsterdam Café
Life at the Amsterdam Grand Café starts early in the morning: fancy citizens of Bucharest are reading newspapers and taking breaths for their days in the elegant building in the historic district Lipscani. The seats in front of the large windows with view onto the cobbles and rushing people are the best spots within the two-storey venue.   At midday, lunch is following. But as soon as the late afternoon arrives, the Grand Café changes its costume and turns from an unconventional café into a funky bar. Cocktails, beer and music replace the smell of the coffee house. On Thursdays and Fridays, it might happen that a live jazz session is performed on the little stage.   This colourful life also takes place around the Grand Café Amsterdam: bars and lively cafés cluster in the streets of  Lipscani, many lounge barss and jazz venues can be found around the Calea Victoriei boulevard.

Shopping in Bucharest

Shopping in Bucharest
Bucuresti Mall
Yes indeed, the Romanians are proud of their imposing shopping malls and have plenty of them. So take part in a total shopping craze at least once, and stroll through one of the popular malls. Why not the most typical of them all, the gargantuan Bucuresti Mall. Opened in 2001, it boasts over 140 shops on an area of some 99,000 square metres. The building dates from Communist times and is appropriately massive, grey and heavy on the cement. Still, the locals continue to crowd the place, to shop, bowl, drink coffee, or take in a film at one of the ten cinemas.   The shops include all the usual international labels?Adidas, Esprit, Marks & Spencer, Levi's and the like. But there are also less well-known brands, like Aldo Shoes, the local wedding outfitter, Alb ?i Negru, and Romanian designer, Irina Schrotter. It's well worth having a look around, although you probably won't pay less for international brands than you would at home.
