Travel to Bucharest
DMC Bucharest - we love to share Bucharest with you. Bucharest is also known as "little Paris", a city with elegant architecture which even has its own Arc de Triomphe. Bucharest has wide boulevards lined with old trees, beautiful Belle Époque houses and there is plenty do do and see. Lipscani, in the old town, is being restored to its former glory, where at the beginning of 14th century merchants from all over the world opened their shops. Bucharest's old town offers cozy cafes with great food and a vibrant nightlife (with dancing) and is the place to be if you want to be entertained. Bucharest is a great place for events and incentives. It even has its own wetlands, a place teeming with wildlife, which sort of happened by accident.

Travel Highlights Bucharest
Arch of Triumph
Beautifully carved out of pure Romanian wood in the 1922, this landmark has a remaking story attached to it. Initially built to pay a tribute to the heroic bravery of Romanian soldiers in the First World War, the land mark now has clipped a deep place in the hearts of the locals. With its perfectly edged statues and structures that decorate it, the place is a ravishing sight for many tourists. The wide stairs that lead to a mounting height, present a perfect panoramic view of the city.
House of the Free Press
The house which stands as an impressively elegant building carries out some of the most important services for the city. Just like the city it resides in, the house of free press has grown over time in terms of its responsibilities. Being a post office which handled the entire city's printing presses and news rooms, this eye-catching structure has also taken on the challenge to handle Bucharest's stock exchange for the southern region. At a first glance, you'll be pulled towards the buildings beauty only to find out later that it's a perfect fit for ‘beauty with brains'!
The Revolution square has been credited for having two reasons that owe to its immense popularity, one relating to its name and the other for having such popular neighbors! The revolutionary event of December 21st 1989 still lingers around many minds. It was this place where Nicolae Ceausescu witnessed his final days of powers when he stood at the balcony of his party's headquarters and faced a howling crowd with media covering it all.Not only this, the Square is also popular for many famous master pieces orbiting around it. For instance, the former Royal Palace; now converted into the National Art Museum, the mind boggling Romanian Athenaeum, and the small yet beautiful Kretzulescu Church, all cluster around this square.
This museum is located on the Herastrau lake shore in Bucharest; one of the biggest and the oldest outdoors museum in Europe. Its exhibits genuine monuments including houses, pens, churches, water and wind mills, cloth mills, of great historic and artistic value.
Old Princely Court
The first local place of residence was built during the rule of Vlad the Impaler in the 15th century and Radu cel Frumos the princely residence and the Wallachain capital to Bucharest (think Dracula!). In the century Mircea Ciobanul rebuilt it completely and afterward it became the of the Bucharest, being surrounded by the houses of traders.
The Old Town
The old town area, otherwise known as Lipscani, is a total mess yet fascinating. Many of the streets were ripped up years ago; then due to a dispute were left rather than repaved. Some are currently being repaired. There are wonderful buildings beautifully restored right next to derelict buildings falling down where they stand. The whole area is covered in restaurants and bars and despite everything is a great place for a drink or a meal. Highlights include the Old Court (Curtea Veche) once the palace of Vlad Tepes aka Dracula, the Old Court Church, the Hanul Lui Manuc - a former in.
Event ideas Bucharest and Romania
As one of Europe's lesser explored MICE destinations, Bucharest offers hidden gems and to a lesser extend known events you can fit into your itinerary to surprise your group.
Event idea Romania:
Untold is the biggest festival for electronic music in Romania and counts to the top 10 electronic music festivals in the world, with many famous artists like David Guetta and Armin van Buuren taking the stage.
Each year in August the festival takes place at the Cluj soccer Arena in the city of Cluj-Napoca (a 6 1/2 hour drive from Bucharest). If your clients love attending music festivals, this one is a must-see during their trip to Romania.
