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
Balthazar
The Balthazar is one of the top places to dine in Bucharest. Here you are served French-Asian fusion cuisine at its most sublime. For foreigners it's affordable, but you can assume that the Romanians you see here belong to the capital's top earners. The old villa where the restaurant is located has been lovingly restored with an eye for detail. The gardens and avant-garde bar, perfect for a drink before or after dinner, are especially attractive. The guests are still hip, even if the times have past when business dinners took place no where else. Perhaps too, despite the culinary delights, guests have noticed the restaurant's two weak points: a rather anemic wine list and music which can sometimes drive you to distraction. But if that doesn't trouble you, you are set to enjoy a very enjoyable evening in an elegant ambiance.

Hotel Opera
The Hotel Opera looks exactly as you might imagine: elegant, classic, a bit of old-world charm, a touch of the Orient Express, and loads of style. That's what the public areas are like with old paintings of the Bucharest of yore in gilded frames adorning the walls. The guest rooms are more ordinary, but perfectly adequate, and bear such musical names as Aida, La Bohème, Tosca, and Traviata. The suites are Rigoletto, Nabucco and Carmen. The hotel was reopened in 2002 and is perfectly located in the cultural heart of the capital, directly next to opera.Take a stroll through Bucharest, when you return to the hotel you will delight not only in the peaceful atmosphere, but also in the feeling that you have taken a journey back in time to the beginning of the 20th century.One night in a double room starts at 140 euro.

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.
