Do & See
Bucharest boasts many beautiful monuments and landmarks, the most prominent being the Palace of Parliament, an imposing structure that now houses, among other things, one of the city's best museums: The National Museum of Contemporary Art. Other museums worth visiting are the Museum of the Romanian Peasant and the National Art Museum, housed in the old royal palace. Alternatively, enjoy the vast green spaces the city has to offer, like the gorgeous Parcul Carol, or wander around the charming old town.

Old Princely Court & Church

The Old Princely Court (Curtea Veche) was built in the 15th century by Vlad Tepes, also known as Vlad Dracula. According to legend, he kept his prisoners right beneath the court. What remains today are a few walls, arches, tombstones and a Corinthian column. Here you can also find Bucharest’s 16th-century Old Princely Church (Biserica Curtea Veche), the city’s oldest church. Original frescoes and Wallachia architecture are among the star features in this ancient Romanian veteran.
