About life in Bucharest
As the capital city of Romania , Bucharest has an enormous historical and cultural legacy, observable throughout the city. Among the places worth visiting we mention: buildings with a great architectural value, museums and art galleries, public parks and gardens.
From the architectural point of view, Bucharest is a place where several styles blend. A symbol of the Medieval architecture in Bucharest can be found in the city center, in the Lipscani area - this contains the Manuc's Inn (Hanul lui Manuc) and the ruins of the Old King's Court (Curtea Veche). Samples of Modern architecture from the late 19 th century and the early 20 th century are: the Cretulescu Palace and the Cotroceni Palace (the current residence of the Romanian president), as well as the National Bank of Romania 's headquarters. A landmark of the Communist architecture is the current Palace of the Parliament (formerly known as The People's House, i.e. Casa Poporului). Contemporary architecture is represented by tall buildings mostly made out of glass and steel, such as the Bucharest World Trade Center and the Chamber of Commerce.
