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
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.

What to see in Bucharest
Fratelli Club
Macy Gray, Louie Austen and Melanie Fiona have already been here and gave concerts. Also Hurts and Vaya con Dios provided for hot nights in the Fratelli Studios and in doing so even competed with the huge chandelier at the ceiling. The latter is - along with cleverly placed spots - responsible for the lighting which does not only show off the stars on stage.   Not less iconic is the lounge bar with panelled wooden walls where guests can relax after the concerts on chocolate-coloured sofas. Altering light effects and oriental mirrors support the recreation and communication.   And that's even more easier in the Social Club, designed in white colours with threaded upholstered furniture. But only when you aren't thunderstruck at the sight of the overhead deer trophies. In this case the best option is to flee to the Fratelli Beach Club in Mamaia, the most important bathing place along the Romanian Black Sea Coast.

The result is a cosy home away from home, where you needn't fear getting lost between fitness studio and lobby.Of course the Moxa has a fitness room, and the friendly and patient staff will be pleased to assist. And no one will reveal your faux-pas. Discretion is writ large here. Your stay is truly relaxing with just 53 guest rooms decorated in contemporary style. You need meet your fellow guests only when you want to. The hotel boasts bar, terrace, spa, lounge, fitness room, and there are lovely baths in every room.A night in a double room runs from 89 euro.

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.
