    Very nice place to visit, the kids loved it. they were amazed from the exibitions. You can spend in there a couple of hours with the family, and it will be great. The kids entered for free.  more »

    After reading the reviews on trip advisor I was not expecting much and instead I was amazed! A museum full of reproductions of animals, the remains of mammoths also apply yourself the ticket price! SIN has seen a bit of carelessness: not all information labels are translated into English and some screens do not work! To visit!

Where to stay in Bucharest

To take advantage of Bucharest's lively downtown, look for accommodations in the areas of Universitatii square, Unirii, Romana, or Victoriei to be closest to bars, clubs, and restaurants, as well as many of the major sights. Choose from a variety of hostels and budget hotels, or book a night at one of the mid-range or luxury hotels. If you decide to venture farther out of the city, look for lodging close to public transportation to avoid the city's notoriously bad traffic.
