About the destination

Spring Palace (Palatul Primăverii)

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

That's right, only with a reservation made at least 24 hours in advance,

but it is easy to understand given the interest in 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 garments and decorations 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. The Modern Romanian Art Gallery

has works by the most important Romanian artists, such as:

  • Nicolae Grigorescu,
  • Ștefan Luchian,
  • Theodor Aman,
  • Gheorghe Tattarescu,
  • Corneliu Baba,
  • Cecilia Cuțulescu Storck,
  • Constantin Brancusi,
  • Tonitza,
  • Iser


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 patrimony objects of the state and the most representative vestiges from the history of the Romanian people

and the civilizations that existed in this geographical space.


Văcărești Natural Park

In 2016, Bucharest received as a gift its first protected natural area and thus became one of the major European cities such as London,

Berlin or Prague.

Lake Văcărești was originally designed as part of a future hydrological flood defense system,

but it was left unfinished after the fall of the Ceausescu regime.

There have been several initiatives to capitalize on the land, but all have failed, and over time the surface has been filled with water from underground sources.

This has led to the development of an ecosystem inhabited by over 150 species of birds and several mammals and reptiles such as the fox,

the otter rabbit, the newt, etc.

After about 4 years of efforts, the area was declared a protected area and then received the status of a natural park.

Food and fun

Caru cu Bere

Caru cu Bere "is the soul of Bucharest", as it presents itself.

It has been operating for more than 130 years and retains its period decor,

so that once you cross its threshold you will swear that you have gone back in time and stepped into a boyar pub.

The waiters immediately put on your table the menu with pork chop, bean soup in bread, Hungarian goulash, sarmale with polenta and the famous mici,

but also a wide selection of Romanian and foreign beers and wines.


Hanu lui Manuc

Without a doubt, Hanu lui Manuc is the oldest pub in Romania, opened in 1808.

It is clear that such an establishment can only have a design and a period atmosphere, specific to nineteenth-century Bucharest.

And here, as soon as you snap your fingers, carp caviar, shepherd's pie (bulz), turkey borsch, fried carp drowned in garlic souce (mujdei), sausages, are on the table.

Leave room at the end for a portion of papanasi or at least for a homemade ice cream.
