By taxi and on foot .... Taxis are the cheapest means of transport aside from your feet! The city lends itself to this form of transport a lot because I never saw "bicycles for hire." It's a beautiful city full of culture, and very welcoming. Definitely worth seeing.

To get around, I highly recommend taking taxis, which are very cheap. I strongly advise you to always look at the price per kilometer written on the door of the taxi before getting in because some have higher prices. The base price is around 1.39 lei (Romanian currency) per km. I saw most of the city by spending a maximum of 20 lei per day, or nearly 5 Euros!

Bucharest has one of the most extensive systems of public transport in Europe, even though it can sometimes be confusing and crowded. By Buses, trams and trolleybuses. Bucharest has a very complex network of buses, trams and trolleybuses which is, at first glance, fairly confusing to the tourist. This is not because of any inconsistencies within the network, but rather due to the intricate web of hundreds of bus, tram and trolleybus routes found in the city. Once you know your way around the network, however, public surface transport can be a very good way of getting around since there is a bus, ... More tram or trolleybus stop virtually everywhere in this city. The vehicles are usually very frequently, although they can also get terribly crowded at peak hours. By taxi There are a lot of taxi companies in Bucharest and you'll easily find a cab here. But be aware! Don't take any independent cab drivers, but use only the services of big taxi companies. Cars from these companies have the rates displayed on the door. Each door used to contain an initial sitting fee (between 1.4 to 2 lei), a per km fee (1.4 to 2 lei) and per hour fee (14 to 20 lei). However, taxis now display a single number which is both the initial sitting fee and the per km fee. The per hour fee is not listed, but should be around ten times the per km fee. Independent have significantly higher fees (up to ten times the average!) If a taxi does not display these prices on the door it is best not to take it and find another, as you'll probably be charged a rate five to ten times higher than usual. Also, it should be noted that some taxis now have a low nighttime rate listed in a large font with a more expensive daytime rate listed in a small font. So, read carefully and remember that noapte means night. And you should insist to start the meter, and pay the sum displayed by it. By Metro (Subway) Line M1 runs west-east, meeting up with the M2 (which runs north-south) at Piata Unirii station. Line M3 runs on different west-east route serving the main train station Gara de Nord.

traditional dishes (local cheeses, meats, polenta, meat: steak or meatballs, jams of various kinds) accompanied by great beer and delicious bread (I recommend the one in the shape of a panettone, it's white, soft and tasty) Food is generally very good and affordable. Pubs with good live music. Local cuisine, of course.

Bucharest has an amazing array of architectural wonders to amaze all those that enter the city. Among the most popular is the Parliament Palace (the second largest administrative building in the world; the Pentagon being the largest).
The Village Museum is one of the world’s first open-air museums containing about 300 traditional structures like churches, mills etc. as well as samples displaying the traditional way of life around Romania. If you visit the beautiful Museum of the Romanian Peasant at the right time, you can witness a traditional crafts festival taking place.
... More /> The Stavropoleos Church (with some exquisite sculptures), the Curtea Veche Church (the coronation site of many European princes) and the Plumbuita Monastery (which has a religious objects museum as well as a park) are fine examples of true Roman architecture.

Bucharest is the capital and the largest city of Romania. The 500-year-old city is situated on the banks of the Dambovita River, a branch of the Danube.
The city has a typical continental climate with hot summers (28°C–40°C) and cold winters (reaching below 0°C). June to December is considered an ideal time to visit.
The city is home to around 2 million residents and attracts a constant influx of tourists as a result of its landmarks and scenic heritage.
Apart from being known for its quality of education, Bucharest is also the country’s largest ... More industrial and commercial centre. It is well connected to other Romanian cities and European capitals, and has two airports within city limits. However, if you’re coming from outside Europe, it may be difficult to find an airline that flies directly into Bucharest.

Use known company's names - google should do it. Try to stay away from other places off downtown. Dress casual - blend with locals.
