The cheap drinks and food, the architecture, “one of the world’s coolest bookshops,” and the “hipster coffee spots” are just some of the 16 reasons why the Brits should plan their next city break in Bucharest, according to a recent article published in the online travel section of famous British newspaper The Telegraph.
One of the main reasons why Bucharest would be a perfect city break location is that the GBP/RON exchange rate makes food, drinks, and entertainment activities in the Romanian capital pretty cheap for a Brit.
“The current exchange rate is 5.7 lei to the pound and entry to the city’s main attractions should cost you no more than a few quid, while your food and entertainment bill for a weekend should easily come in at less than £100,” writes Hannah Meltzer, travel writer.
The massive Palace of Parliament, the Memorial of Rebirth on Revolution Square, the Carturesti Carusel bookshop, the Arc de Triomphe, and the Romanian Athenaeum are just some of the Romanian capital’s landmarks included on the list.
Moreover, The Telegraph’s readers are also invited to visit Bucharest for its architecture, the Caru' cu Bere restaurant, the hipster coffee spots, its fabulous summer parks, the National Village Museum, and the beautiful Orthodox churches.
The tourists could also go Dracula hunting or take a trip to Sinaia mountain resort. Read the whole recommendations list here.
