Flights to Bucharest - tourist and business capital

Bucharest is not only the capital of Romania and the largest city in the country, but also the number 1 national tourist, economic and business center. It is the second most populous city in South-Eastern Europe, after Istanbul; but in front of capitals such as Sofia, Belgrade and Athens, "Little Paris" is an eclectic potpourri of people from all over the country, but also from abroad, attracted both by the financial opportunities in the Capital and by the social and cultural ones. With large parks, imposing buildings, numerous bars and wide boulevards guarded by shops, Bucharest attracts like a magnet - despite the fact that the residents born here tend to see only the negative aspects, such as congested traffic.

Main Attractions

Spring Palace (Primăverii)

The former residence of the Ceausescu family, at that time the most luxurious home in Romania, is now open to the general public.

You must book at least 24 hours in advance, due to the interest for this monument of luxury from a time when the population slept in the cold and darkness.

The house, as an architectural project, and the interior design elements are the result of the work of the greatest architects and artists of the time, and some of the clothing and decorative pieces are received as gifts from heads of state and important people of the world.

National Museum of Art of Romania

The most important art museum in the country operates in the Royal Palace on Calea Victoriei, a space it has occupied since 1953.

The museum's collection is divided into two large galleries, the national and the European art gallery.

The Gallery of Modern Romanian Art has works by the most important Romanian artists, such as Nicolae Grigorescu, Ștefan Luchian, Theodor Aman, Gheorghe Tattarescu, Corneliu Baba, Cecilia Cuțulescu Storck, Constantin Brâncuși, Tonitza, Iser and many others.

National Museum of History

The most important museum of the Romanian state, and perhaps the largest apart from the open-air ones, operates in the former Post Office Palace on Calea Victoriei. Here are exposed the most important objects of state patrimony and the most representative vestiges from the history of the Romanian people and of the civilizations that existed in this geographical space.
