Bucharest’s landscape is an interesting mix of old historic buildings, ancient churches, lush parks, lakes, and elegant boulevards. In recent years, several restoration projects have been undertaken to bring the older structures and architecture back to their former glory. Here are a few things that you must see and do when visiting Bucharest:
Try some traditional Romanian fare such as the tripe soup, the sarmale (stuffed cabbage rolls), or the large range of borsch dishes, as well as the mititei (grilled minced-meat rolls). Also try out the tuică, a traditional spirit made from plums. Visit Carturesti Carusel, one of the coolest and prettiest bookshops in the heart of the city’s Old Town with a huge collection of books, vinyl, stationary, and novelty items. As is true of any busy city, be careful of pick-pockets and keep your wallets and sundry items safe in crowded public places. Also be alert around stray dogs.
