Among European capitals, Bucharest has not recovered quite as well from the 20th Century. There are still large sections that were demolished by the communists and never rebuilt. There are also many very poor neighborhoods. However, there are a number of good reasons to see the city. The Parliament Building is the largest office building in Europe. There are many tiny, dark yet fascinating Orthodox and Catholic Churches. The Museum of the Romanian Peasant is one of the best museums in Europe and includes a small wooden chapel imported from Transylvania.Recommended for:

At the turn of the 20 century, Bucharest was often called the Paris of the Balkans, and it is still possible to see why, at least in part - the broad, tree-lined avenues and the buildings designed by French Beaux-Arts architects make Bucharest one of the handsomest cities in Eastern Europe.

Known for its wide, tree-lined boulevards, glorious Belle Époque buildings and a reputation for the high life (which in the 1900s earned its nickname of "Little Paris"), Bucharest, Romania's largest city and capital, is today a bustling metropolis.
Romanian legend has it that the city of Bucharest was founded on the banks of the Dambovita River by a shepherd named Bucur, whose name literarily means "joy." His flute playing reportedly dazzled the people and his hearty wine from nearby vineyards endeared him to the local traders, who gave his name to the place.

Chi si trova a Bucarest per affari o turismo, ed è alla ricerca di un posto dove andare a mangiare, troverà certamente indimenticabili due ristoranti unici nel loro genere: parlo di Jaristea (http://www.jaristea.ro/), locale tipico, posizionato nel quartiere a ridosso del famoso palazzo del parlamento, che può vantare una delle migliori cucine tradizionali rumene in un ambiente suggestivo dove anche i camerieri fanno spettacolo, coordinati dalla Matrona del locale, una vera attrazione, che darà il via anche a musica e danze che renderanno la serata piacevolissima.
Il secondo è Caru' Cu Bere (http://www.carucubere.ro) in una traversa della centralissima Strada Lipscan, vero cuore pulsante del centro storico di Bucarest, anche qui ottima cucina rumena, musica e danze tradizionali in un locale suggestivo, ricco di stupende decorazioni.
Ovviamente consiglio assolutamente di prenotare per evitare lunghissime attese, in quanto entrambi i ristoranti sono frequentatissimi da turisti di ogni provenienza ma anche da moltissimi rumeni, garanzia di ottima qualità.

One of the more depressing cities in Europe. It's poor, run down, and heavily under construction. In 10 years it might be great, but right now there's just not much reason to go. The only decent tourist attraction is the parliament building, an overindulgent monster built by the communist dictator before the revolution on the backs of the starving masses (30,000 people were displaced from the residential location chosen for this beast). It's interesting, but not a reason in itself to visit Bucharest.
