Considered one of Europe’s best-kept secrets, Bucharest boasts a unique look that effortlessly blends elements from the East and the West. To marvel at the city’s unique architecture, head over to the Palace of Parliament, which was built during the communist rule of the country. Blending iconic communist architectural elements with modernist Neoclassicism, the building is a living witness to the country’s controversial era. There are walking tours for interested visitors, and the building also houses Romania’s National Museum of Contemporary Art. For those interested in history or cultural lessons, the National Museum of the Romanian Peasant, with its impressive collection of pottery, certainly is a good choice. For those who simply wish to enjoy a walk among nature, Carol Park is relatively close to the city center, and it rarely gets crowded.

Like most big European cities, the food scene at Bucharest is vibrant and extremely diverse. For those who enjoy authentically Romanian dishes, Casa Doina is a great choice. If you wish to enjoy something more exotic, Divan could be a great choice.
