Located between the Transylvanian Mountains and the Black Sea, Bucharest is mistakenly an overlooked tourist destination. Its true beauty hidden behind old communal buildings requires tourists to dig deeper into the city’s colourful history and culture to discover the famous ‘Little Paris’. With a steady pace of development underway, Bucharest has become a busy metropolis and the center of all economic and social life in Romania. Wide boulevards lined with luscious trees, cafes, bars, shopping plazas and wide parks have lifted Bucharest out of the old times and made it come to the standards expected of a European capital.
Rejoining the EU in 2007 has initiated a number of development projects in the city to further increase tourism and boost the economy.
