Bucharest

Bucharest is the capital and largest city in Romania, as well as its cultural, industrial and financial centre. Known for its wide, tree-lined boulevards and glorious Belle Epoque buildings, Bucharest is a bustling metropolis. The city’s elegant architecture and the sophistication of its elite earned the city the nickname of “Little Paris”.

The city centre is a mixture of medieval, neoclassical, Art Deco and Art Nouveau buildings, and is famously home to the Palace of Parliament, the second-largest building in the world after the US Pentagon.

The Old Town is one of the most famous and animated places in Bucharest. Only 10-minutes from the conference centre, you can explore the narrow cobblestone streets of Lipscani to discover art galleries, antique shops, coffee houses and restaurants.

In between the stunning architecture of Bucharest, there are beautiful green terraces and city gardens and parks. Just a 10-minute drive from the National Library of Romania you will find the Carol park, a scenic park established in 1906 which features a French garden, historical monuments and a lake.
