For a city that last year celebrated its 550th year of existence, Bucharest still looks in good shape! And has a lot to offer both to its inhabitants and visitors.
If I had to recommend someone with little spare time what to visit in Bucharest to feel the “flavour” of the city, these are my favourite places, with beautiful architecture, which reminds us that it was once called “Little Paris” :
The City Centre
Calea Victoriei (Victory Avenue)
The Romanian Atheneum on Calea Victoriei
Victoria (Victory) Commercial Galleries, Bucharest
Now in full process of reabilitation – a lot of cafes and some new shops have opened lately in this area, making it more and more attractive to Bucharest people and tourists.
Cafe Van Gogh on Smardan Street, Bucharest (Lipscani Area)
Cafe on Selari Street, Bucharest (Lipscani Area, Old City Center)
Old City Center (Centrul Vechi)
The National Library, on Doamnei Street, Old City Center Area
Music and traditions in Cismigiu Park, Bucharest

It looks beautiful. What is the best time to visit?
Maybe because I’m born in spring, I like Bucharest most in this season, when green is greener and the air is fresher. The only problem in spring – it is possible to rain a lot.
And I would say summer too because a lot of people go on holiday and the city is less crowded and invaded by cars.
September is also a pleasant month for a visit to Bucharest.
