The Romanian capital is a bizarre mix of unique Wallachian architecture, the best museums in Southeastern Europe and pompous projects of the era of communist leader Nicolae Ceausescu. Once upon a time, the legendary and gloomy Vlad Tepes lived and ruled in Bucharest, whose personality served as the prototype of the bloody Count Dracula. The city is full of mysteries, interesting discoveries and unexpected finds.
Much of the historical heritage of Bucharest is irretrievably lost, as in the XX century, whole blocks of old buildings, churches and streets were demolished. But much has been preserved – picturesque palaces, the old quarter of Lipskani, the remains of the medieval fortress of the Wallachian princes. Nowadays Bucharest has been reborn. More and more tourists are walking the streets, architectural monuments are gradually being restored and infrastructure is developing.
