Bucharest Favorite Tips by edvin_br
Bucharest Favorites: 103 reviews and 127 photos
Favorite thing: This square is a meeting place of 6 main roads plus some secondary streets, all of it makes it a busy and very crowded area in most of the day hours.
Around the square you will notice many new business centers, The Romanian Government, a few museums and the Kiseleff park.
The square can be reached by metro.
One of the highest building at the city Center
Favorite thing: Bucharedt Financial Plaza is one of the first modern A class office buildings built in the city (at the middle of the 90's) and still keeps a high reputation and very high standards.
The shiny high (about 70m.) building is situated at Calea Victoriei, at the cities historical center so it dominates the view of the all area.
The river just before the sunset
Favorite thing: As almost in any big city in Europe, Bucharest also has its own river that in Romanian called "Dimbovita".
This river is not a natural one, it was established at the beginning of the 20th century and lies in 2 parts of the city: one part comes from the west and stops at the huge Unirii square, the secong begins at the other side of the square and continuous to east.
Some of the cities main architectual sights (the Justice Palace, Agricola and Adriatica buidings and more) can be found at the banks of the Dimbovita river.
Fondest memory: At my last visit to Bucharest (summer 2004) the central part of the river was almost empty of water and very very smelly, especially at the minouts when I passed one of the bridges. Anyway, I have heard that when the level of the water is higher people even use to fish there, im surprised that there are stil fishes in the water...
An interesting building at piata Revolutiei
Favorite thing: This is a pretty strange office building that stands behind the Central University library at the University square.
I heard that the old building under it was used by the Romanian secret police at the communist days... scary stuff really....
Big commercials on a block at Magheru blvd
Favorite thing: Everywhere you pass in Bucharest you can notice the huge Commercial sings... there are hotels and rental advertisement in the airport, huge signs of car models at the entrance to the city and commercials to fashion and electronic companies at every corner of the city Center. It makes a feeling of huge metropolin... I LOVE IT!!!
Fondest memory: Lately some people try to make laws against alcoholic advertisments.... so will we have to say goodbye to Johny Walker from Piata Revulutiei...? I hope not....
Charles De Gaule office building
Favorite thing: Charles De Gaulle office building is one of the newest highrises in town, built in 2004. The building is very shiny and could become a remarkable sight at Charles De Gaulle square.
The center of BRD at piata Victoriei
Favorite thing: This small skycraper (about 100m. i belive) is one of the most imprssive and highest office buildings in Bucharest. It also houses the headquarters of the BRD bank. The building is located at piata Victoriei, the area that in the near future expected to become Buchrests main business area.
Romana square and the high hotel behind it
Favorite thing: The world hotels chain Howard Johnson Plaza took over the high Dorobanti hotel in Bucharest a few years ago. Today, after years of renovation the hotel has a great new look, very modern and last year its opened to the public.
The high building is also an unmissible part of Bucharests skyline.
Fondest memory: The branch of the hotel in Bucharest is the first that was opened in Europe by Howard Johnson Plaza.
Europa house... The home of Orange in Romania
Favorite thing: This is another one of my favourite shiny buildings in Bucharest. It was completed at the beginning of the 21 century and considered as one of the top A class office buildings in the city. The headquarters of the giant mobile company Orange is situated in the buildng.
Intercontinental, highest at the city for years
Favorite thing: The Intercontinental hotel, at the University square of Buchareest is without a doubt one of the cities most significant symbols.
Tourists willl find that hotel as a starting and finishing point at thier visits and the locals see it has a central point of thier daily life.
