About Bucharest

Bucharest is located in southeast Romania on the river Dâmboviţa. The city has in recent years evolved into one of Europe's hippest destinations, which means that the town has had to adapt accordingly. This has resulted in lots of newly opened places where you can eat, drink, shop, go clubbing and sleep.
