Info about Bucharest

Area:
228 km2
Elevation:
70 m
Overview

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 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.

Overall Guide : 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... more 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. 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.

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