Exploring Bucharest from your holiday accommodation in Ghencea
Bucharest is a fascinating city, full of both modern and ancient history. It has wide, tree-lined avenues and handsome Belle Epoque architecture. This, along with a reputation for high living, gave it the nickname of ‘Little Paris’ in the early 20th century. The House of the Free Press used to be the centre for most of Bucharest’s publishing and is modelled on the Lomonosov University in Moscow. The Arch of Triumph is the city’s version of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris and offers excellent views of the city from its 85 foot high viewing platform. Calea Victoriei, meanwhile, is the city’s oldest and prettiest street.
