Visit Bucharest

The Town

The Town is one of Bucharest's earliest settlements, where structures date back to the 15th and 16th centuries. Throughout time, it was the seat of Romanian princes, a place to worship, and a crossroads for travellers.

Palace of the Parliament

The Palace of the Parliament is one of the top tourist attractions in Bucharest. It is the world's second-largest administrative building (after the Pentagon). This architectural colossus is also the heaviest building in the world.

Romanian Athenaeum

The 19th-century building, designed by French architect Albert Galleron, resembles an ancient Greek temple with a 41-meter-high dome and a peristyle of six Ionic columns. The interiors feature a lobby with intricately painted gold-leaf ceilings, cascading balconies, and spiral marble staircases.
