  • Was something new to me, but gave it a try in Night of Museums. And i enjoyed it. Some things were too absurd for me, but it was a pleasant surprise. Give it a try  more »

  • This Place is must in this city, shows and events are thoughtful and interesting Founded in 2001, the National Museum of Contemporary Art of Romania shaped itself as a living institution dedicated to exhibiting, researching and promoting Romanian contemporary art. Relocated inside the Palace of Parliament within the historically symbolic House of the People since 2004, the museum aims to present relevant names in Romanian and international art through a holistic approach to visual culture. Too bad its crammed in a government building with controlled access
  • Is free,is great and a great start before a tour inside the palace...i am not sure how long or when is exactly open,but usually is available when tour hours are open,so give it a try,for free.is very original,and for sure you can se something for your taste... When i was there i got a glimpse of a vast art variations
  • The exhibitions are very interesting. At the end of your visit go to the rooftop terrace. It's a nice spot to watch the sunset. From time to time, there are nice events going on there.
  • The new exhibitions are quite interesting!
  • Love the place! And a great spot to have a view over the church under construction behind the Parliament!

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.
