Visit Bucharest and do not miss anything

Old Town

The current old town was saved from the demolition of the Ceaucescu era and contains valuable monuments such as Sfantul Anton Church and the Stavropoleos Monastery; and that's just the beginning, because you can then tour its streets full of charm and find the city’s best restaurants and shopping areas. To do this, it is best to go to the Gabroveni and Lipscani streets.


This work is an example of Ceausescu’s urban plan. The construction of this neoclassical building began in 1984 and it broke the Guinness record for the largest and most expensive administrative building in the world with an area of 340,000 square metres. It reaches 86 metres above ground level and up to 92 metres below ground. It contains up to 64 halls and more than three thousand rooms.

Revolution Square

Revolution Square is famous for its importance in the recent history of the country, being a symbol of the revolution against the Ceausescu regime in 1989. Nearby is the old Royal Palace, the University Library and the Athenaeum. However, the most famous building is the Central Committee of the Communist Party from which Ceausescu fled after the anti-communist outbreak. University Square is also known for its historical significance.
