Bucharest Holidays Overview


Bucharest is the gateway to Romania and a booming, modernized city that has changed a lot over the recent years. Once known as "The Little Paris", Bucharest has a mix of the new and the old. It has excellent attractions, a modern, trendy and sophisticated image that it has worked hard to cultivate.

Bucharest has a good cultural scene with a diverse nightlife, performing arts and visual arts scene. While it doesn't have a defined style yet, it has successfully incorporated elements of international and Romanian culture.

Among the many monuments and landmark buildings of Bucharest, perhaps the most impressive is the Palace of the Parliament. The Arcul de Triumf is another important landmark modelled after Paris's Arc de Triomphe. The Romanian Athenaeum is a European Heritage Sight and a symbol of the country's culture.

Bucharest has contemporary as well as classical Romanian art museums. The National Museum of Art of Romania is the city's best known museum with collections of modern and medieval art.

Performing arts is Bucharest's strongest element and the National Radio Orchestra of Romania is the city's most famous orchestra. Bucharest is also home to Europe's best known electronic music clubs like Studio Martin and Glam Club. Throughout the city there are many notable nightlife venues, particularly in Regie and Lipscani.

Most cultural festivals are celebrated in Bucharest in summer. The International Opera Festival is organized each year in May while the George Enescu Festival is celebrated in September. The Romanian Peasant and Village Museum also organize various events each year to showcase Romanian crafts and folk arts.

Bucharest holidays - Top Places To Go

 
1. Palace of Parliament
Bulevardul Unirii
www.cdep.ro/cic
What is it? Built by Communist Party leader, Nicolae Ceausescu, the colossal Palace of Parliament is the second largest building in the world after the Pentagon. It is an immense structure that took 20,000 workers and 700 architects to build, and cost billions. It has 12 storeys, 1,100 rooms, a 328 ft-long (100m) lobby, and four underground levels including an enormous nuclear bunker. Started in 1984, the dictator intended it to be the headquarters of his Communist Government, but it was still unfinished when he was executed in 1989. Today it houses the seat of Romania's Parliament and is an international conference centre. Widely viewed as a personification of his obsession with grandiose things and actions, the construction entailed the demolition of a quarter of Bucharest's historic centre, including 26 churches, and the relocation of 40,000 inhabitants from their 19th-century homes to new developments on the outskirts. Built and furnished exclusively from Romanian materials, the building reflects the work of the country's best artisans. A guided tour takes visitors through a small section of dazzling rooms, huge halls and quarters used by the Senate (when not in session). The interior is a luxurious display of crystal chandeliers, mosaics, oak panelling and marble, gold leaf and stained glass windows, and the floors are covered in rich carpets. The largest room has a sliding roof wide enough for a helicopter to enter. Tour guides delight in recounting tales of the vast amounts of money that went to waste in decorating and re-decorating its rooms.
