The best things to do in Bucharest

Are you making your list of things to do in Bucharest? Great! The city has many things to see and do, so
you will not be bored for a single minute. Due to its long history, the city is a mixture of styles, as a simple walk through the historic center will attest.

The Palace of Curtea Vech, one of the most popular places to visit in Bucharest, bears witness to the medieval past of the city. Most of the older Bucharest attrations are located in the district of Lipscani. But many of these medieval buildings have suffered through wars and have disappeared over the years only to be replaced by more modern structures. The Centrul Civic is a neighborhood built in the communist era, and definitely one of the most interesting things to see in Bucharest. This was a part of the important architectural renewal of the city and was the first time the city's built large commercial buildings.

One of the locals' favorite Bucharest activities
is taking a stroll down Kisseleff Avenue, a street has been described as Bucharest's Camps Elysees, complete its own Arc de Triomphe!
The Romanian capital is one of the main artistic centers of Central Europe, with many museums and galleries that rank among the top attractions in Bucharest and Romania at large. The National Museum of Art, the National Museum of Contemporary Art and the Museum Zambaccian house important works by painters such as Picasso, Monet, Cezanne and Matisse.

If you like the arts, you'll find lots of stuff to do in Bucharest. Music and theater have traditionally been very important to the city. If you get a chance, the Philharmonic Orchestra is one of the best in the world and should not be missed. And if you're wondering what to do in Bucharest by night, the city has a multitude of bars and venues where you can enjoy the nightlife .
