BUCHAREST- THE ''LITTLE PARIS''

It is well-known that each European capital has it's vibrant side that drags you into the country's culture.

And for sure Bucharest is one of them. The main attraction being the Old Town along with great parks and large squares, you can always discover the unknown old side of Romania.

I will let the pictures talk for me and if you have a chance to visit the city, I am more than happy to create a customized itinerary for you (free of charge!)
PS... just let me know!

The Palace of the Parliament

The building has 1,100 rooms, curtains of 250 kg, a light chandelier of 3,000 kg and it was all build using Romanian materials. To design such a masterpiece, it took 700 architects under the led of a women- Anca Petrescu. The tours take place daily, so I highly recommend this one (full ticket around 10-15 euro). See more details here.

 The Romanian Athenaeum 

The building was completed in 1888 by the French architect Albert Galleron. It is incredible that the only source of finance was the money from public fundraising.
