Best things to see and do in Bucharest
The capital of Romania is one of the great unknown of Europe, but increasingly, one of the most interesting and attractive tourist destinations of the continent, for its great beauty, an interesting social life and a wide cultural offer. Located in the Muntenia region - on the banks of the Dâmbovița river - in the southeast of the country, this city has ample green areas and an interesting heritage that is worth visiting. A city without a large population - which barely reaches two million inhabitants - and a pleasant climate throughout the year, makes it easy to enjoy this interesting city, perfect for planning a tourist getaway of a few days.
Apart from the atmosphere, the museums and the heritage of the "small Parisian", the visit to the city implies discovering its gastronomy, really varied and especially recommendable. Dishes as recommended as rice wrapped in cabbage "Sarmale", the typical Romanian sausages "Mititei", traditional mash or "Mamaliga", or traditional skewers "Frigarui"
