The Royal Palace and the Village Museum give a fascinating insight into Bucharest’s past and its rural life, while avenue Calea Victoriei cradles the city's galleries, theaters and plush hotels. Gaze with amazement at the infamous Communist monolith that is Ceausescu's Palace
Evenings in Bucharest are filled with traditional song and dress in cosy inns and quaint bars. There are modern venues such as the Sky-Bar too, with its beautiful roof top views across the city. The National Opera House offers up culture with some stunning performances and there are more than a few restaurants to suit every budget and taste. Baba Dochia is a real find for authentic Romanian food, with friendly waiters on had to help with the lingo!
Despite the communist facade, Bucharest is a fast-emerging European capital. With its faded elegance and French style palaces, it will fit snugly and happily with the likes of Paris and Prague and be their equal.
