Trips to Bucharest

Bucharest travel

Bucharest is known for its Art Nouveau architecture, hipster culture, summer parks and Dracula. It was believed to have been founded in 1459 by Bucur back in the Middle Ages. The capital went through the Ottoman rule, as well as Russian and Hapsburg domination. Between the two world wars, Bucharest was at the pinnacle of its cultural development, though dampened when the Communist regime was in power. Today, Bucharest is an important financial and industrial centre in Romania as well as a vital player in the services sector. Travellers on flights to Bucharest will find a capital in the throes of constant urban renewal, retaining its culture whilst keeping pace with modern times.
