When we told friends we were taking a trip to Bucharest the most common response was why? Despite Brits taking more and more weekend breaks to former Eastern Bloc cities such as Tallinn, Prague and neighbouring Budapest, why wasn’t Bucharest on their radar?
Romania is easy to get to (just under 3 hours from London), it’s part of the EU, it has a rich history, Dracula lives there and Prince Charles loves it, so what are we missing?
Fortunately, there is a group of passionate Bucharest locals – “ExperienceBucharest” who want to address our preconceptions. ExperienceBucharest’s mission is to share their love for the city and show the world Bucharest’s diverse culture, its architectural heritage, the excellent food and everything this historic city has to offer.
