Starting this post we should admit the truth. We never thought that there are so many places to visit in Bucharest! It was a really nice surprise. The capital of Romania is quite large, with almost 3 million habitants (maybe more) with interesting history and vivid nature. Besides that, it is a great destination if you travel on a budget! You can find great hotels and restaurants in really good prices.

So let’s check out some of the best places to visit in Bucharest :

The Romanian Athenaeum

Cismigiu Gardens

A delightful park-garden with many kind of local and imported plants. It is really an oasis in the city. Many benches to take a seat and enjoy a hot traditional covrigi with sesame (something like pretzel).
