Bucharest Travel Guide

The communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu who ruled Romania for nearly thirty years had visions of the city of Bucharest as the most beautiful and important place in Europe. Although many of his grander designs were never fulfilled, the city still boasts many impressive buildings that give a hint of his socialist utopia. Happily for the people of Bucharest, Ceausescu was violently deposed and executed, and his cruel reign has been replaced with an era of positivity in spite of the povertyy of the country. Bucharest has many pleasures for visitors to enjoy including a wild nightlife characterised by stag groups.
