Bucharest Cruises

Once known as the ‘Paris of the East’, Bucharest holds an ageless allure with its newly renovated museums and dynamic architecture. It offers an ideal jumping off point for excursions into Transylvania’s fairy-tale castles and thick forests. There’s a bevy of attractions to charm you within the city limits, from the cobbled streets of historic Lipscani to the over-the-top opulence of the Palace of Parliament with its 1,100 rooms. The city’s old town is a hub for dining and nightlife. People watch in a trendy café or have a wander to see art nouveau villas tucked away next to modern monuments.

Bucharest, Romania


Bucharest is a great place to pick up a bargain or two, so don’t miss the chance to explore its tucked-away boutiques and large shopping malls. One of the biggest is the Unirea Shopping Centre, where you’ll find both international and local shops well worth a browse.

The Palace of the Parliament must be seen to be believed, with over 1,000 rooms dotting this modern palace. It was built as the world’s second-largest building (second only to the USA’s Pentagon building), and takes up several city blocks with its grandeur and excess.

There are loads of worthy museums in Bucharest, including the National Museum of Art. This is housed in the former Royal Palace, with sections for old European masters as well as a National Gallery of Romanian art.

Enjoy the fresh air and greenery in the city’s gorgeous parks, starting with Cismigiu. It’s the city’s oldest, built in 1847. Highlights here include the Chess Players Alley, lake with boats for hire, and Writers’ Round featuring busts of Romanian intellectuals.  

After a garden stroll, top up your caffeine levels in one of Bucharest’s buzzing coffeehouses, from the chic modern surroundings of Origo to the charming Grand Café Van Gogh bistro in the old town.
