The cuisine, the nightlife, the architecture of the cities, mixing the traditional with the modern, and the Romanian people’s hospitality are only a few of the things that make Romania such an exciting destination.
Bucharest, the capital city of Romania, is one of the most vibrant cities thanks to its theatres, galleries, great events and nightlife. The Palace of the Parliament – the second largest buildings in the world by surface, the Dimitrie Gusti National Village Museum – an open-air ethnographic museum and the Romanian Athenaeum represent a must on the traveler’s list.
You can find great tips on Bucharest City App, a free tool designed to maximize the Bucharest experience for expats, nationals and foreign tourists. Other Romanian urban gems are: Brasov – positioned beautifully in the heart of Transylvania, Timisoara – the cradle of democracy in Romania, Sibiu – one of Europe’s official capitals of culture, Iasi – a genuine national historical and cultural museum and Cluj – the upcoming regional tech hub. Sighisoara – one of the most beautiful and best-preserved medieval towns in Europe was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. This perfectly intact 16th century gem with towers, cobbled street and ornate churches rivals the historic streets of Old Prague or Vienna for atmospheric magic.
