Holidays in Bucharest
Bucharest Holidays will show you how underrated the city is as a destination. Romania’s capital has an urbane swagger to it, with busy bars and restaurants serving hearty Romanian food, a cuisine that has echoes of Turkish, Hungarian and Italian cooking without quite resembling any of them.
Elaborate historical buildings such as the Ateneul Roman Concert Hall and the arcaded Patriarchal Cathedral are a draw, but many visitors also look beyond the city, using Bucharest as a gateway to explore Romania further. The mountain resort of Sinaia, home to two royal castles, is under two hours away by train, while the Black Sea coast’s sandy beaches are three hours away.
