Bucharest Mini Guide

Bucharest is the capital of Romania and on the banks of the Dambovita River. It became known as ‘Little Paris’ and ‘Paris of the East’ between the 2 World Wars, due to its mixed but grand architecture. It’s name, as legend says, comes from a shepherd called Bucur (whose name meant joy). He entranced the locals with his wine and flute playing, so they decided to name the town after him.

Getting To Bucharest
If you are not intending to drive Eurolines and Atlassib have long distance coaches from western Europe and CFR Railways has trains from major cities in eastern Europe and Russia. The city’s Henri Coanda International Airport has flights arriving from most major airports in Europe and Russia. From there you can drive into the city using the DN1 route or take the 783 bus. Some hotels have shuttle buses from the airport, so it’s worth checking.
