Best Times to Visit Bucharest
The best time to visit Bucharest is June to August, when the city charms its visitors: the parks are in bloom, attractions extend their hours, and the city becomes more attentive to its foreign guests. And because this city lacks a high volume of visitors and a strong currency; you'll find hotel rates and the cost of goods and services inexpensive throughout the year. So why not see Bucharest at its best?
Bucharest poses for pictures in the summer. Blue skies stand behind beautiful buildings and above green parks, and the warm (but not too hot) weather doesn't make its photographers sweat. You will, however, encounter the summer thunderstorms, but these shouldn't detour you. Just pack an umbrella.
As the trees change colors along the boulevards, Bucharest quietly prepares for the bleak winter. But you shouldn't follow the residents when they go indoors. Seeing the sights in 60- to 70-degree weather is still enjoyable. Bring layers because you'll get an early taste of winter at night.
Bleak, freezing, snowy, gray, windy -- Bucharest is ruled by Jack Frost. The holidays don't even brighten this city very much. Since tourism is not a large factor, hotels lower their rates only marginally. Winter sport enthusiasts should take advantage of the inexpensive opportunities in the Carpathian Mountain Range just two hours away from Bucharest.
Spring warms up Bucharest, but a winter hangover can persist. Average temps cruise back into the 50s and eventually low 70s Fahrenheit by the end of May. Nights are chilly, but the nightlife will heat you up.
