Do and see
Bucharest has many different, beautiful landmarks and the most prominent one is Palace of Parliament. To get a sense of Romanian history, visit the Museum of the Romanian Peasant or if you feel like a stroll in the outdoors go to the gorgeous Parcul Carol 1.
Palatul Parlamentului (Palace of Parliament)
Built during Ceausescu’s regime, the Palace of Parliament is Romania’s most famous building. The public tour of the opulent staircases and chandelier-filled rooms offers a fascinating insight.
Arcul de Triumf (Triumphal Arch)
Similar to its Paris namesake, Bucharest’s Triumphal Arch remembers Romania’s Great War soldiers and its reunification in 1918. Initially, the arc was built of wood in 1922, and was then finished in Deva granite in 1936.
National Art Museum
Romania’s most impressive art collection is displayed in this sprawling royal palace (Muzeul National de Arta). Here you can see works by Rembrandt and El Greco, among a collection of European art works.
University of Bucharest
In addition to being the centre for Bucharest’s intellectual and political events and the most popular meeting place in Bucharest, the University of Bucharest has a dramatic history. During the 1989 Revolution, some of Romania’s fiercest fighting took place here. Close by you can find the University of Bucharest’s School of Architecture, the National Theatre, the Coltea Hospital and the Sutu Palace (History Museum).
Filarmonica George Enescu
The superb Filarmonica George Enescu is the hub of Bucharest’s musical activity. Exquisite mosaics and historical frescoes adorn the 19th-century circular building, which hosts impressive orchestral concerts.
Museum of the Romanian Peasant
This delightful museum opened in 1906 and is widely regarded as Romania’s best. A veritable treasure trove of pottery, icons and clothing. It also houses the fascinating Communism Exhibition and the ruins of an 18th-century Transylvanian wooden church.
Jewish History Museum
This museum, situated in a stunning synagogue built in 1850, tells the story of Romania’s Jewish population up until 1937. Make sure to catch the moving tour to get the best experience.
Lipscani District
Lipscani, Bucharest’s historical centre, retains an old town charm which is almost irresistible. It is located between Calea Victoriei, Blvd. Bratianu, Blvd. Regina Elisabeta and the Dambovita River. Its collection of winding streets boasts antique markets, bric-a-brac spilling out from tiny boutiques and some of the city’s most appealing restaurants and bars.
