Attractions 1 Day in Bucharest, capital of RomaniaNovember 18, 2019
Attractions 1 Day in Bucharest, the capital of Romania surprised us by its size, for having the second largest parliament in the world and also many other surprises that will count most here in this post.
We went to Bucharest on a road trip we made by Romania and Bulgaria, we 5 days in each country, We visited over 10 cities and rolled over with 1.800Km car rent with rentcars, We caught and returned the car at Sofia Airport, Bulgaria's capital to get cheaper, always we caught and returned the cars rented in the same place to reduce costs.
Bucharest was our penultimate stop on our penultimate day trip, We arrived in the city at the time of coming from Bran breakfast, in Transylvania, know where 3 cities beyond Bran where is the famous Dracula's Castle, also we went to Sinaia, the city of castles, rasnov e Brasov we made base to know all these cities in our Screenplay by Transylvania.
As soon as we arrived in Bucharest went to our Hotel ibis Parliament Palace Bucharest City Center, We chose to stay in this hotel as well as being very good, with everything we needed in a hotel, they also had place to park the car, something very important in some European cities when it is car, but the main reason was its location, which is adjacent to the Parliament of Romania and the old center of Bucharest, which are almost all tourist attractions.
We were only there one day a, because as we toured many cities had little time to Bucharest, but we can say that in 1 day you meet a lot of the city, clear that the ideal is to have a 2 or 3 days, but the time is always short in our travels, then we try to make the most of the time we have.
Speaking a little about Bucharest, the city is the capital and the commercial center of Romania, who was part of the Soviet Union, the city is in the southeast of the country. One of its main attractions is undoubtedly its imposing parliament.
almost 2 million people is the largest city in Romania, even with an old historic center of the town is not old by European standards, the first stories told in the ancient books dating from the city 1.459.
Romania, as well as Bucharest was not in the script of tourists, because for many years was a former communist country as part of the USSR, but after the fall of the USSR and the country becoming independent, soon after being part of the European Union 2007, the country has become sought after by tourists and is still an excellent place to visit, it is a very cheap place to stroll, eat and stay, the currency is not the euro, Lev is the Romanian that has a value similar to that of Real.
The country is quite safe, we had no problems anywhere that we and the capital is also quite safe, many people do not speak English, but in most tourist places yes, but nothing that a good mimic not solve. The only place we had trouble was the last day of trip, na leaving the country.
