Flights to 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
Vatra
Treat yourself to an overdose of tradition at Vatra. The food is so delicious and authentic, there must be a Romanian mama in the kitchen. The rest of the magic is in the décor: traditional textiles and handicrafts, some of which date back to before 1920, adorn the walls. Surprisingly there is not a long wait for a table. Don't worry about busloads of tourists here, the place is just too small, as well as relaxing and cosy. If you can choose, take a table downstairs in the cellar. Dark and gloomy? Just the opposite: the illuminated vaults create an appealing, rustic atmosphere. You must order the stuffed cabbage, or stuffed vine-leaves. They are served with the classic accompaniment of polenta. Non-smokers will be delighted, the Vatra has a separate room where smokers can puff away.

Herastrau-Park
In and around Bucharest there are many parks that beckon you to take a stroll, unwind and relax. These landscaped gardens are given their distinctive character by long and winding lakes. A glance at the map shows that Bucharest is studded with green areas and bodies of water. The biggest such leisure area is Herăstrău Park. It impresses by sheer size of 187 hectares. In relation to the city's area it is thus a good deal larger than New York's famous Central Park with its 349 hectares. The lake gracing the park's centre is so long and narrow that it looks more like a river, whose banks make the perfect setting for a picnic. When the weather is warm, the Herăstrău Park is great for people-watching and soaking up the city's flair.

Where to shop 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 like Adidas, Esprit, Marks & Spencer, or Levi's. But there are also less well-known brands, like Aldo Shoes, the local wedding outfitter, Alb şi 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.

Nelisse Hotel
The Nelisse at the gates of Bucharest is not just an extraordinary value but also one of the cosiest hotels in town. The rooms are enchanting: wallpaper with delicate floral motifs, here a touch of rose, there a dab of pastel. So your day gets off to a relaxed and romantic start after breakfast in the intimate breakfast salon. The draw-back: the hotel is located about three kilometers from the city centre. However, the Nelisse offers rental cars to get you downtown in a jiffy. In addition to the 43 guest rooms there is an apartment. If you are interested, you will have to book early though.
