NY Times maps 36-hour visit to Bucharest

A recent article in the online edition of the NY Times suggests several activities for a 36-hour visit to the Romanian capital which is “brimming with Italian-style cafes, museums, parks and restaurants that celebrate the country’s rich cuisine.”

“A rich ethnic culture, a resurgent arts and crafts scene, beautiful parks and a booming night life,” are the pluses of Bucharest that the article highlights.

Among the sites and activities recommended: are a tour of Ceausescu Mansion, the villa of the former dictator in the Primaverii neighborhood; a meal at Caru’ cu Bere , a brewery and restaurant serving traditional Romanian dishes in the city’s Old Town; having a coffee in one of the capital’s many coffee shops; shopping for local products at Obor Market and Mesteshukar Butiq; and visits to the city’s Cismigiu Gardens, Peasant Museum, Village Museum or Romanian Athenaeum (pictured).
