Castle Tour from Bucharest

Wide tree lined boulevards, magnificent architectural buildings, and a reputation for the highlife. During the 1930’s the city was remodeled by French architectures, on the boulevard of Soseaua Kisseleff you can find an Arc de Triumph, set in the same fashion as the one in Paris. Cafes and restaurants with open sidewalks and an abundant of shops can be found scattered throughout. A visit would not be complete without a boat ride on one of the many lakes and rivers.

Bucharest is more than 500 years old and dates back to the time of Vlad Tepes, Dracula . He was the first leader to make Wallachia free of outside influences. Near by his tomb was supposedly buried under a church at Snagov Lake. There are traces of his presence all over the city with themed restaurants, bars and shops some which of are quite amusing.

Before the end of the communist era a massive building was constructed, first named “The People’s House” renamed The Parliament Palace, it is in the Guinness Book of World Records as the second largest administrative building in the world after the Pentagon. In December, 1989 the members of parliament took over all the offices. The building of 1,000 rooms reflects the work of the country's best architects and artisans.
