What comes to your mind when you start thinking about the countries you could visit during your next vacation? I would guess – Spain, Italy, Turkey or Egypt. I doubt that such country as Romania will come to someone’s mind.
With this post, I am hoping to change people’s perspective about Romania, in particular – Bucharest.
Unfortunately, when you ask a person what does he know about Romania and would he ever visit it, the answer is almost always negative. Romania is trapped by many false stereotypes, which push people away.
I am in love with this country, in particular, with Bucharest. This city is absolutely amazing and diverse. If you walk around it, you will see new modern buildings next to the very old ones, which automatically creates a comparison between the “past” and the “present”. The area of Bucharest that I like to go to the most is the Old City. There you can find a variety of different cafes and fancy restaurants, where you can enjoy the cuisine from all over the world. You will also spot many museums and interesting buildings, which won’t leave you indifferent. This is the area to go to if you would like to take beautiful pictures and enjoy the friendly atmosphere created by the locals.
It is, of course, very nice to visit popular countries with an amazing hospitality, however, sometimes it might also be interesting to see something different in all aspects. If this is the case, Romania is the place to go!
