Romanian Countryside

Although not located within the city limits of Bucharest, the Romanian countryside certainly warrants a visit as its majestic landscapes and picturesque castles capture your imagination.

Old Town

Bucharest´s Old Town is ideal for a quick stop or stroll down the pedestrian-only streets. Rest with a coffee at one of the countless cafés or browse the iconic sculptures in Revolution Square, one of which is Vlad the Impaler, a 13th-century prince on whom the character of Dracula was based.
