Best Things to Do in Bucharest
Bucharest can keep you busy for days. You want art? Head to the National Art Museum or the National Museum of Contemporary Art. You want architecture? The Parliament Palace and the Romanian Athenaeum won't disappoint. How about anthropology? If so, swing by the Museum of the Romanian Peasant and the Village Museum. When you get tired of museums and old buildings, recharge with a walk through the city's many parks -- the Cismigiu Garden and Herastrau Park are musts. And should you want to let loose, Bucharest hosts a booming (and very inexpensive) nightlife plus a surprisingly popular jazz scene in the Lipscani district, the historic center.
