Bucharest is the capital of Romania and one of the top Romanian destinations. If you’re planning to visit Romania your trip will most likely start and end with Bucharest, who has become in the last years a major attraction. With its stunning mismatch of architecture and a flamboyant night life, Bucharest has transitioned from the “little Paris of the east” to the “new Berlin” due to its generous and diverse offer for places to see and things to do. Last, but not least, Bucharest is one of the most affordable cities in Europe, where you can drink a good beer for only one dollar in a safe city.
Although it is well-known for its vibrant cultural life, the parks, theatres and museums, the capital of Romania is much appreciated for its spicy and lively night life. The Old centre, or as it’s known by the locals “Centru Vechi”, consists of what has been conserved after the destructions of 2nd World War and the communist flagella.
This old part of Bucharest, who was in a deplorable state ten years ago has become the centre of fun and entrainment. Its streets are filled with cosy bars, posh restaurants and trendy clubs where the party starts at dusk and continues with an after-party until lunch time.
For a memorable night, you can start you night with a traditional dinner:
Caru’ cu bere -The beer wagon, the oldest brewery in Bucharest. Caru’ cu bere is the perfect restaurant for anybody who wants to enjoy a bit of history and old Romanian recipes along with their speciality, the house beer.
Zexe, a gourmet approach of the Romanian cuisine is the perfect pick for an authentic, elegant and tasteful evening. Zexe restaurant is a good place to try local food that you don’t get elsewhere easily. It is exactly the opposite of what it is called a tourist trap.
Lacrimi si Sfinti (Tears and Saints) is an unusual Romanian restaurant with a modern/contemporary kitchen. This restaurant has an interesting history, as it was created by a Romanian poet and a public personality committed to save a native endangered culinary culture. The menu is prepared with fresh, organic and local ingredients only.
After a good dinner, what about a dink in a pub or a bar in the endemic centre of Bucharest fun?
Nomad SkyBar. Go up to the top floor, stop by at the bar and you will not be disappointed.

Bruno, Wine Bar&Bistro is one of the first wine bars in Bucharest, where you can taste over 150 wines from 5 continents and 16 countries. It is a more quiet place, preferred by bohemian characters, unless you sit outside on the summer terrace and look at the people strolling on the Old City’s narrow streets.
