Once known as “Mini Paris,” Bucharest is the capital of Romania, as well as its financial and cultural center. This year, the city celebrated its 555th anniversary, as it was first mentioned in 1459 in official documentation. Bucharest’s impressive architecture presents itself as the city’s living, tangible history, uniquely combining Neo-Classical, Art Deco and Communist-era styles. From its luscious parks to its revolutionary memorials, Romania’s history is directly embedded within its infrastructure.
