Bucharest (București) is the capital and largest city of Romania, as well at its cultural, industrial, and financial centre. It is located in the southeast of the country, on the banks of the Dâmbovița River, less than 60km north of the Danube River and the Bulgarian border.
I’m going to present some places which you can visit, in city centre. And here we are:
ARTHUR VERONA STREET
Arthur Verona Street, is a street with contemporary art at the Street Delivery festival, a cool festival with music, painting, theater and craftsmen. Plastic artists have changed the painting from the famous “turbot” on Arthur Verona Street and it deserves to be visited.
ACADEMIEI STREET / UMBRELLAS STREET
Everyone knows about umbrellas who invaded big cities, now in Bucharest you can see the dozen of colored umbrellas, which bring smiles to the faces of the passers-by, designed to keep shade, gives the little pedestrian area a fairytale atmosphere.
Bucharest Old Town is a mix of local culture, history, lifestyle and trendy entertainment. It mixes building that are several hundreds of years in the popular arcitectures of the time. Also, there are lots of restaurants, cafes, eateries, and bars to choose from.
CARU’ CU BERE
Caru’ cu Bere is a bar and restaurant on Stavropoleos Street in the Lipscani district of Bucharest, Romania, opened in 1879 and moved to the current location, a gothic revival building designed by Austrian architect Siegfrid Kofczinsky, in 1899. It is noted for its distinctive art nouveau interior decoration.
