A blend of old and new
The fabulous mixture of old and new that characterizes Bucharest makes it an enriching place to visit with something new around every corner. There are few places in Romania as packed with historical and cultural significance as Bucharest's Old Town. The area features a glorious blend of architectural styles, including baroque to neoclassical or art nouveau.
