Six Things to checkout in Bucharest, Romania

1- Old Town & Food! 

The old town in Bucharest is kind of small, but it's nice to walk around and take in the different types of Architecture they have there.

There are plenty of restaurants and bars there. I only tried the very fancy Caru' cu Bere. It is only two minutes walk from the Stavropoleos Church. I loved the interior of it. The service was on point. Sea food available. Their vegetarian food was nice, but nothing exceptional. The meat dishes looked so tempting! £35 total for two three course meal + drinks + teas

2- Stavropoleos Church

I loved the architecture and the interior. It's small and can be seen and photographed in half an hour. It was quiet and peaceful.

3- Graffiti in Bucharest

Another thing to keep an eye out for when you are walking around old town and in Bucharest in general in their graffiti. They have various styles that are worth looking at. 

4- Herăstrău Park and the village Museum + FOOD! 

A metro ride away took us to the park. The village museum is located inside. The online opening hours showed that the museum was only closes on Monday, but when we arrived on a Tuesday in February it was closed. It looked cool from the outside. After spending a couple of hours walking around and chilling (literally) we went to the restaurant inside the park. They served really yummy sea food. £35 total for two three course meal + drinks + teas

5- Botanical Garden Museum + Flaffel

The garden was mostly covered in snow, but we just went to the museum inside. We ended up spending an hour there just looking at the illustrations and 20mins walk from there, there is an amazing Turkish restaurants that made some tasty falafel sandwiches and served free tea. It's called Calif.

It's located on the other side of the old town. It was nice strolling beside it and watching the birds walking on the frozen water.
