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.

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. And 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. But 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.A night in a double room starts at about 43 euro.

What to see in Bucharest

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.
