Bucharest is a city of contrast when it comes to architecture. You can find palaces build over 200 years ago, buildings that are now historical architectural jewelry, small houses or communist buildings. You have to walk with your eyes wide open to feel the spirit of this old city.
Romania is an Orthodox Christian country. Many Romanian’s place a high value on religion. The Romanians were open to accept the other religions of people living in Bucharest, therefore, the Italian Church or the England Church were build, to name a few.
Bucharest can be a city of music, urban art and culture. From spring until autumn, there are plenty events to choose from. If you want to catch a festival, here are a few suggestions so you can plan you trip to Bucharest.
