What To Expect
Bucharest is nowadays the first of the cities of Romania, both in size and importance (political, economical, financial, commercial, cultural-scientific, touristic, etc.).
See the Arch of Triumph, a monument inaugurated on 1st December 1936 which glorifies the bravery of the Romanian soldiers who fought in the First World War. Visit the Village Museum, one of the world's most interesting ethnographical parks in open air. Here you can see 50 complete homesteads, churches, windmills and even sunken houses from rural Romania.
You will also pass by The Revolution Square, one of the city's most important squares, surrounded by emblematic buildings such as Hilton Hotel, the former Athenee Palace Hotel built in 1883 and the highest building in Bucharest at that time; the Romanian Athaeneum, the headquarters of Romanian Athenaeum Society, which had as purpose spreading cultural and scientific information; the National Museum of Art, which houses treasures painted by Rembrandt, Veneziano, Monet, Sisley, El Greco, Breughel and Rubens; the Kretzulescu Church, a monument synthesizing in its architecture, the art of the Brancoveanu epoch; the Memorial of Rebirth, the Central University Library, and much more!
Finally it's the Palace of Parliament, also called the House of People or the House of Ceausescu, built between 1984-1989. It represents the grandest administrative construction in Europe. It has hundreds of offices, halls for receptions or for other events (scientific, cultural, social-political), dozens of conference rooms. It covers 265.000 sqm interior surface, being the second biggest in the world after the Pentagon building in Washington. It is also the third in the world considering its volume, after Cape Canaveral building, USA (where the cosmic shuttles are assembled) and after the Quetzalcoatl pyramid in Mexico.
