BUCHAREST

Bucharest, the capital of Romania, is the economic, social and cultural centre of Romania, being, in the meantime, an important tourist attraction. Located in the southern area of the country, Bucharest lies halfway between the Danube River and the South Carpathian mountains, on the banks of the Dambovita and Colentina rivers. The city dates from the fourteenth century. It has been the capital of Romania since 1862. Bucharest has always prided itself in being a very hospitable city. We strive not only to accomplish a pleasant visit to this metropolis, but also to make it an experience worth remembering. For a visitor who is going to stay only a few days it is important to be able to find his way around current cultural programs, tourists attractions, shops and restaurants quickly and easily. There are a rich and satisfying variety of things to be seen and done by visitors - museums, theatre, exhibitions, concert halls, parks and monuments that still talk about its history. With some major exceptions, Bucharest has managed to maintain the architectural symbols of the past in the midst of its transformations. Try to discover and understand its many aspects and you will surely find its charm. Our desire is to make sure that you will always remember your stay in Bucharest with pleasure.
