Bucharest Airport Otopeni

Airport Car Hire

The capital of Romania, Bucharest is also the country’s most popular tourist destination. These are three of its most interesting attractions:

  • Palace of the Parliament. Built during the oppressive years of Nicolae Ceauşescu’s rule, Palatul Parlamentului is not every local’s favourite, but there’s no question that the imposing structure is among the city’s most notable landmarks. The second-largest building in the world after only the Pentagon in the United States, the palace houses two chambers of the Romanian senate, but parts of it are open to tourists. The palace is also home to the National Museum of Contemporary Art, one of the best of its kind in the region.
  • Old Town. Although only parts of Old Bucharest have survived to this day — the original settlement has been affected by several earthquakes and also suffered under the demolition policies of Ceauşescu — it is one of the most atmospheric and interesting areas of the Romanian capital. Known for its scenic cobblestone streets, the Old Town is home to a number of architectural landmarks and also has some of the city’s finest restaurants.
  • Museums. In addition to the aforementioned Museum of Contemporary Art, Bucharest is home to a large number of other notable galleries and cultural institutions. Some of the highlights include the National Art Museum, the Aviation Museum, the fascinating Museum of Senses known for its collection of objects and devices that create optical illusions, and the Museum of the Romanian Peasant.

Skiing trip (8th year of visiting Romania) and every year we use a taxi service. Ironically, car hire is much more efficient as it allows you to travel in comfort and flexibility (we were able to stop enroute to buy shopping)

Drove to Bran Castle and then onto Pele's Castle which is stunning, and very opulent. Drove to Therme Bucharesti, a huge wellness centre to the north of Bucharest. Stunning and excellent value, especially if one purchases an all day ticket. We were there from 10am until 5pm, and still didn't manage to use everything on offer. We are considering another trip to Bucharest, will stay to the north of town, and will buy all day passes to Therme for the entire duration, we loved it so much there.
