Summer is here, holidays plans are on, everybody wants to go abroad and experience new destinations. A city break in Bucharest has to be on your must see list.

Travel habits have changed. The traditional two week holiday has remained but new forms of tourism and mobility have added to the travel mix: long stays, extended city breaks, slow travel and sustainable destinations.  Travelers are willing to go a little farther and spend a little more than they normally would on a summer holiday.

So, why should you choose a city break in Bucharest?

The New Berlin, as it is recently called (while once was named “The Little Paris”), is a city of contrasts. If you appreciate an eclectic mix, where the buzzing night lifestyle unfolds on the cobbled streets of the Old City next to centuries old churches and architecture is a dazzling mix of styles, then Bucharest is a destination for you. Great coffee, artisanal beer, delicious food – Romanian cuisine is a delightful fusion of gastronomical influences from Balkans – will ensure that your taste buds will surely remember this city, to say the very least.

Add to this that prices in Bucharest are still very affordable – actually, there is a recent study that has proclaimed Bucharest as Europe’s best budget city break – and you might just have found your place for fun and pampering, without breaking the bank.

City Break in Bucharest: Things To Do

We have compiled a list of what to do in Bucharest, check it out for some recommendations of places to visit and restaurants. Now, we will have a slightly different approach, and explore the tourist attractions of the city, by type of traveler. This way, you will find something to do, whether you are traveling with family, as a couple or with friends.

City Break in Bucharest With Friends

Bucharest is a great place if you are a group of friends looking to have fun. The Old City is renowned for its pubs, bars and restaurants. Practically, the party never stops. Take a very short walk from Hotel Cismigiu – but far enough to have a quiet nights’ sleep in the hotel – and you are in the city’s boisterous and cheering center. Parties with friends can go till morning, with plenty of clubs and bars to choose from.

If you are looking for a pampering city break with your girlfriends, then Therme is the place for you. The largest thermal water spa in Eastern Europe is a paradise for those looking for a place to relax in the pool, bask in the sun on the sandy beach or enjoy massages and other lush spa rituals. Hotel Cismigiu has a special offer for that, with packages of one night accommodations and a ticket to Therme spa. Check it out here to make the reservation.

City Break in Bucharest With Your Family

If you come with your spouse and children, then look for accommodation in Bucharest that is both centrally located – in order to easily reach all the attractions of the city – and spacious. The rooms at Hotel Cismigiu are as spacious as a flat. The modern rooms, filled with retro-chic interior details and all innovative features will make you feel right at home, while you’re away from yours. Plus, the view is absolutely amazing: Regina Maria Boulevard will make you understand why it used to be known as a small Bucharest Broadway.

Get some recommendations on things to see in Bucharest on your first visit: museums, churches, beautiful libraries and shops. One attraction in particular will be appropriate for families that are looking to discover the cultural heritage of Romania: The Village Museum, one of the most authentic theme parks dedicated to traditions from all over the country. The nice part is that it is situated in the open air, in Bucharest’s largest park, Herastrau.

Bucharest For Two

When you come as a couple, the place you need to start a romantic journey is the hotel’s own restaurant. Cismigiu – Bistro la Etaj. Situated on the hotel’s rooftop, it not only offers a panoramic view of the city skyline, but it is also tagged as the most romantic restaurant in the city. Take a look and see for yourself.

Bucharest has a lot to offer to couples looking for a romantic city escape. Its small coffee shops with specialty coffee, secret gardens, cozy places hidden in lush gardens will take you on a romantic journey to what was once known as the “Little Paris”. The hotel itself is one of Bucharest’s boutique hotels, just perfect for a couple’s retreat.
