Bucharest

Bucharest
Fly with Austrian to Bucharest, the capital and certainly the largest city of Romania. Most people visiting Romania want to see the great areas of Transylvania, but this part of the country is famous for one reason only: Vlad III Dracula or Vlad the Impaler, villain in the Victorian novel from the 1880s, but also a historical figure who fought against the Ottoman Empire. He is actually the first to mention Bucharest by name and who had his residence here for a while. The city has the nickname „Little Paris of the East“ from a time when Bucharest was the center of the new Kingdom of Romania and was rebuilt in grand Art Nouveau style. You can get an idea how this looks when you go down the Calea Victoriei, the grand Boulevard of Bucharest. In the Lipscani district, which is a center of the wild nightlife of Bucharest, you can still find the Old Court, the residence of Vlad Dracula in the 15th century. Have a look at the megalomaniac Palace of the Parliament, started in the 1980s under communist rule and still unfinished. In stark contrast is the Dimitrie Gusti National Village Museum in Herăstrău Park, where you find hundreds of authentic farm buildings from different areas and eras of Romania. The Cișmigiu Gardens are large park in the center of the city and a great getaway for locals and tourists. Enjoy your time in Bucharest!

Where to eat in Bucharest

Where to eat in Bucharest
Rossetya
You will have to try hard to find an equally gracious, elegant, yet unpretentious restaurant. The Rossetya is decorated in the manner of the 19th century and cannot be excelled for atmosphere: thickly upholstered chairs, fabric wall-coverings, curtains with braiding, gilded frames, mirrors, grandfather clocks a bit overdone? Not at all. Here everything has its place, and a terrible void would result if anything were to be removed. If you are planning a larger gathering, the restaurant also offers two separate rooms. The food is delicious. Basically, the cuisine served at Rossetya is traditional Romanian fare, but with a delicate touch that brings it to a new level. If you pass by and are not hungry, stop in nevertheless. The Rossetya has a café where you can relax over coffee and a cigar.

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.

Nichi

The fashion designer has presented her creations on many a catwalk and invariably earned ecstatic kudos. In the shop on Piata Unirii slip into one of the designer's latest creations, you're sure to be won over. Elegant businesswear with that certain something extra, lovely handbags, and clothes for that special event. Too bad Nichi Cristina Nichita only designs for women, but she really knows how to pamper them. The designer plays with classic looks that are never dull because they all have a dash of contemporary spirit. Pick out your favourite dress and reserve a table at a chic bar to show it off.
