If people call it the Paris of the East, it must be for a good reason. In fact we found many good ones why Bucharest is one of the most beautiful European cities. First of all, it is one of the most accessible places in Europe, Bucharest’s mass transit network is the fourth largest in Europe. Despite being Europe’s richest country in gold resources it is a very affordable destination compared to other European cities. Bucharest lies on the banks of the Dâmbovița River, less than 70 km (43.5 mi) north of the Danube River which add a special “je ne sais quoi”. Bucharest is ancient, bustling, charming, beautiful, cosmopolitan, lively, humble but at the same time regal. Everywhere you look there is a monumental building, symbol of its glorious times such the city’s Palace of the Parliament which is the second-largest building in the world after the Pentagon. Economically, Bucharest is the most prosperous city in Romania and is one of the main industrial centers and transportation hubs of Eastern Europe. The city has big convention facilities, educational institutes, cultural venues, traditional “shopping arcades” and recreational areas. Last time we visited Bucharest it was in June to enjoy the many cultural festivals that take place during the summer.
