  • For someone who wants to see and understand why is the Prince of Wales in-love with Romania and the reason he bought properties in Transylvania, this is the place to start. It offers an amazing experience. Take a couple of hours for a walking tour and enjoy some of the goodies that are available either in the inside restaurants or near the exit door.
  • Very beautiful outdoor museum, only problem is that you cannot pay with card at the main entrance of the Museum, you have to walk 1 kilometre to the ATM.
  • A walk trough time See various style houses and traditions across various periods, see how people lived back in the days Large section of the park to walk, enjoy and absorb history We liked it and out kids enjoyed as well

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.
