Must see spots in Bucharest
The museums of Bucharest are some of the best in the country from the National Museum of Contemporary Art with its four floors overflowing with treasures, to the Museum of the Romanian Peasant and the National Military Museum to the west of the city.
Once you have spent several hours looking at exhibits you might need a rest. The Cismigiu Gardens are beautifully laid out and perfect for a welcome coffee and a spot of people watching. If it is atmosphere you are after, venture into the 18th century Stavropoleos Church which contains an ornate courtyard with relics from a bygone era.
Fly to Bucharest for a thrilling performance of the philharmonic orchestra playing at the Romanian Athenaeum, built in 1888. Failing that, there are many performances at the Opera House throughout the year. Nightclubs are sprouting up all over the place if you fancy a dance, and shopping for Romanian goods is best done at the Museum of the Romanian Peasant.
