Best Things To Do in Bucharest – Let’s Take A Walk!

Begin your experience with The Universe Palace. This is one of the top 10 beautiful buildings in Bucharest and a history lesson. Just think about it. The Palace was built at the beginning of the 20th century, in the Renaissance style of the French. Do you know that the largest newspaper in Romania, at that time, had the headquarters here for almost 50 years?

Discover the hidden palace of the park, Kretzulescu Palace. What to expect: some touches of French Renaissance, baroque influences, 60 rooms, a boyar house. Rich decorations with a special aura. Textures with a good touch of sobriety. Small turrets, monumental outer stair, ceilings with wood-engraved ornaments. Elegance and beauty. A very fashionable building, from the end the 19th century – a real mansion as never seen before in the city.

Stop at The City Hall Palace where some of the most important things to do in Bucharest are decided. Built before the Great Union of 1918, this edifice is all about power and traditions. Neo-Romanian style, the shape of a square, an impressive facade. You’ll be surprised to see a building made by one of the greatest Romanian architects, Petre Antonescu. And guess what? The palace’s construction failed to begin five times. It is really hard not to find out why, right?

And these are just a few of hundreds of stunning building all over Bucharest. Come to the capital of Romania and be ready to fallen in love with them!
