Bucharest Old Town

If you’re looking for a European city that hasn’t been taken over by tourists, Bucharest is the perfect place. The historic center is full of charm and character, and there’s plenty to see and do. Here are just a few of the reasons why Bucharest should be on your travel list.

Bucharest has a long and rich history. The first written mention of the city dates back to 1459, and it has since been ruled by everyone from the Ottomans to the Communists. As a result, Bucharest is a unique blend of East and West, with something to offer everyone.

The historic center is also home to some of Bucharest’s most iconic landmarks. The most famous is probably the Palace of Parliament, which was built during the Communist era.
