If you are a business traveler, then you probably don’t have that much time to spare. Still, there are some must-see places and must-do things before you leave the city and with good time management you’ll be able to make the best out of your trip here.
Either if you’re coming to Bucharest on a business travel or as a tourist, you have to see the Palace of Parliament even if you don’t have the time to visit the interior. This is one of Bucharest’s main attractions and its most famous building. Some people see it as an architectural monstrosity and the symbol of Ceausescu’s megalomania while others are impressed by how imposing and luxurious it is. Either way, everyone seems to agree this is a must-see place in Bucharest.

Romanian Traditional Food

No matter how busy you are, you still have to eat, right? You cannot come to Bucharest and not have a taste of the traditional Romanian food, it’s delicious! The most famous dish is “sarmale cu mamaliguta” but there are many other traditional dishes you should try. Be warned: most of them are made with different kinds of meat, so it’s safe to say it’s not the most vegetarian-friendly traditional cuisine.
Just because you are on a business trip in Bucharest, it doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun too. Bucharest is an entertaining city with a vibrant nightlife, the kind of place where it’s impossible to get bored once the night comes. And if you want to soak up Bucharest’s nightlife, the best place to do it is the Old Town. Here you’ll find a variety of pubs, bars, clubs, restaurants, lounges, comedy clubs and even theatres, so you can either party till dawn or just relax over a glass of wine. Bucharest is also famous for its luxury casinos, a great alternative for night clubs.
If you’re travelling to Bucharest on holiday, then the best way to get to know the city and its locals is on foot. Bucharest has many beautiful neighborhoods, streets and buildings just waiting to be discovered. This is how you will get to see the contrast between new and old, between its modern present and communist past and many other cultural influences that make it a unique city.

Romanian AthenaeumEven if it’s really difficult to mention all of them, here are some of the places where you should try to visit:
Bucharest’s most beautiful neighborhoods: Cotroceni, Armenian, Negustori, Mantuleasa.
Museums to visit: Village Museum, Grigore Antipa National Museum of Natural History, The National Art Museum, Peasant Museum, George Enescu Museum, The Museum of Art Collections.
Gardens and terraces where you can hang out if you are visiting the city in the summer that are not in the Old City: Funky Lounge (Herastrau), Eden, J’ai Bistrot, Acuarela, Verona Garden.
Buildings you should not miss: Romanian Athenaeum, Stavropoleos Church, The National Bank Palace, Cantacuzino Palace, CEC Building, National Theatre, Coral Temple, National Military Palace.
Another place that is perfect both for business travelers and tourists is Therme Bucuresti, the biggest spa and wellness center in Europe. This place is like a tropical paradise where you can actually relax and escape the concrete jungle even if it’s just for a couple of hours.
Last but not least, Bucharest accommodation is very budget-friendly both for business travelers and tourists. The best accommodation option in Bucharest is staying at one of the lux apartments in the city centre. They are affordable, impeccable, really close to all the main tourist attractions and offer you all the comfort and privacy you need on your stay here.

Enjoy!

Things to do in Bucharest

What you can do in Bucharest?

Once known as the Paris of East, a reference for the beautiful ateneulmixture of architectural styles, l during latest years Bucharest has become acknowledged as one of the most vibrant cities for the night life lovers, and also a resource for fun and spa relaxation.

Bucharest as Paris of East

The architecture is a beautiful mixture of classical and eclectic French style. Victoriei Avenue and Kisseleff are the most representative streets to understand the reason for which the city is named The Little Paris of East.

Victoriei Avenue is long row of beautiful buildings on which the French architects or at least their influence showed their mastery on imposing edifices like Royal Palace,Cantacusino Palace or Atheneum.

On the other side, the Arch of Triumph and the entire urbanist setting, the intersection with Kisellef Road is for the tourist a reflection of Champs Elysee.

The Palace of Parliament

It is the most grandiose building in Bucharest, actually, being the second largest administrative building in the world, can easily be named as one of the most impressive edifices in the world. Even if most overseas tourists knows it as the Palace of Ceausescu, the truth is that the former communist leader has never reached the point in working or living in this palace

The night life of Bucharest

Bucharest Old City is wildly know for its vibrant night life. Mainly known as Lipscani area, due to the main street, the walking area is full of amazement an joy. There is no taste that the old city can cover: from fine dining, clubs to theatres and street art, the narrow streets of the of Bucharest is the side of enjoyment and place to be to have fan.

You can eat, dance, enjoy beautiful music and relax within the same perimeter.

Where to sleep and eat in Bucharest

There are plenty of accommodation options in Bucharest. Hotels 2-5*, guest hoses, villas and serviced apartments for all tastes and budgets are spread all over the city.

As we mentioned the Old city is the homeland of restaurants and dining out area. Even in small neighbourhood you can fine either lovely restaurants or small take-away shops

Bucharest serviced apartment with a view

Serviced apartments with a view in Bucharest

Bucharest seen from a suite with a view

I am being arrogant these days and and trust me, I have a good reason. I do have a room with a view. It’s not the movie, no, not at all but I  really have the good fortune to oversee Bucharest city from one of the upper floors windows in ONE88 Apartmentsone of the newest serviced apartments in town. The view is simply magnificent!

Behind the all endowments of the lovely suite that I stay in  these days, the image of an agitated city t is the best blessing I need.

Why ONE88 Apartments are different?

Some of you might know I explore Romania since there used to be a tour operator having the same name.  I ran the agency and well, as a former travel professional I used  to go from hotel to hotel  in order to know my “commodity”.

1 BEDROOM APARTMENT in ONE88
1 BEDROOM APARTMENT in ONE88

The number of accommodation spaces I have visisted last 5 years is countless. And , remember, I have always visited them with a critic eye.  Luckly for my sense of relaxation, The tourism period is long gone and I can always evaluate as a normal tourist does. Now, back to ONE88 Apartments and their differentiations:

  • The apartments are spacious. The smallest suite sums a surface  of around 40 sqm.
  • The luminosity of the apartments is overwhelming.  If you rememeber I mentioned “window”. Please Pardon me! I am speaking about  hight countless windows, all in row!
  • Apartments’ equipment:  the kitchens are fully endowed, all you ONE88 Apartments viewhave to do is take the benefit of all furniture.  Bathrooms have all the stuff you need, including toiletry. And the living space… well, once again: modern furniture, large TV set ( LED, unlike other places) cable TV, High speed wifi…  You name it and you shall recieve.
  •  Safety. There are serviced apartments around the city, but in this case all apartments under ONE 88 are under the same roof. Guests  benefit of 24/7 porter services, parking place  and other safety amenities  similar to hotels, but have the privacy and space of an apartment. 
  • Amenities withing the building  are different.  The facility has an amazing 350 sqm indoor playground  and above the building is a sky bar offering an amazing sunset view.

You all know that accommodation is always beyond words. Come and experience it!
