In the past two decades, Bucharest has begun to shake off the dust of its past to welcome a new generation of travelers eager to discover the next "It" destination of Europe. Much of the city’s old world charm was swept away under its former Communist regime, but the city is coming back with a new age of restoration and rejuvenation. Incredibly undervalued, Bucharest offers plenty for the intrepid traveler, including a dizzying mismatch of architecture, elegant parks and villas, and a storied history that is slowly being reclaimed for a brighter future. Most of Bucharest’s revival is happening in its Old Town. Once a bustling place of commerce and community, the majority of this history-rich area was cleared during Romania’s Communist days. What remains, however, is being brought back to life. From trendy cafes to rooftop bars, boutique hotels and clothing stores, the spirit of renewal vibrates through the area, especially when the sun goes down. Check out the Van Gogh cafe, Pura Vida Skybar, and Bicicleta if you’re looking to mingle with locals. During the day, explore Food Hood, the city’s largest street market that is always thriving with local music, events, and stalls.
Bucharest may not have the natural hot springs of towns like Bath or Baden-Baden, but it does have Therme. This relaxation center is unparalleled in Romania, and features thermal pools and the largest indoor garden in the country. Relax in heated waters surrounded by lush vegetation so thick, you’ll think you landed in the Amazon. Complete your stay with a massage and a drink, and you’ve found the perfect rest-day activity for your trip. #travel #bucharest #romania #europe #firststoptravelsolutions #flights #hotels #cruises #travelinsurance #airporttransfers #activitiesandtours #travelconsultant #travelagent #bestfares #qualityservice #thisiswhatwedo #letmehelpyouwiththat #callme #imthebest #fsts
