Bucharest
Vlad the Impaler stated his claim to Bucharest in 1459. His citadel on the Dambovita was the first of flotillas of palaces, many of which still stand. Four subway lines and a modern bus network transport visitors and commuters. Nicknamed "Little Paris", Bucharest's elegant early 20th-century architecture shows French influences. Don't miss the Village Museum, Romanian Athenaeum and the Peasant Museum. You can't miss the Palace of Parliament, the second-largest building in the world (after the Pentagon).

We would like our visitors to see how Ceaușescu lived, not only as an internationally renowned head of state, but as a man in his own private life - the hobbies that he had, what his routine around the privacy of his home was, how he studied or what art collections he had in his house. less
