A Little Taste of Bucharest ☀️

I've Got Sunshine ☀️ | Style and Travel Blogger - Walking towards House of Parliament, front view

Have you ever tried being a tourist in your own town? Well, to me this is no strange feeling since I am kind of one every year when I visit my home town in Romania. Of course, when it comes to the question “what to do in Bucharest”, I feel like I’m a little behind on what is trending every time I come. Lots can change throughout a year of being away, but some places never leave their spark.  The Parliament Palace (known also as The House of People) is one magnificent place to see, and you can get overwhelmed by its grandeur. An area where I always like to spend my summer evenings is the Old Town, a place centered around amazing old Bucharest buildings and architecture with streets resembling those of Paris. Here’s a small glimpse of what this city has to offer.

The old town area is full of buildings with incredible architecture! The small streets host many places to eat and drink, all of them with terraces and tables outside. It gets pretty full there during the summer season, but that’s the beauty of it! I’m always looking forward to the evenings there when I can grab a fresh lemonade or a cocktail and enjoying the dynamics of the area. Definitely one of my favorite places to spend my summer evenings! Every year it seems that new places are popular there, be it a pub or a restaurant…

The Parliament Palace is a must-see place if you get to visit Bucharest. Built at the request of dictator Nicolae Ceausescu, and to serve as his palace, this monument is now the second largest administrative building in the world (after The Pentagon) and seats the current Parliament of Romania. Its stunning architecture and magnificent facades will take your breath away! The interior is even more amazing than the exterior, hosting 1,100 rooms, out of which only 400 are finished and used.

The yard of the Parliament Palace was as stunning as the building itself, with tons of roses of different colors. I couldn’t help but snap of few photos as I enjoyed the beautiful view, all in this princess-like environment. Can you tell? 🙂

On another note, my outfit was chosen based on the nostalgia I felt when visiting these places… old and full of history. Now that you’ve seen part of my hometown, it’s your turn to tell me… what makes your city amazing?

    1. I know, Victoria, there’s so much to be discovered if we take the time to explore our own city! Hope you’ll have more chance to do so now! 🙂 xx

  1. I’m glad you’re enjoying your visit in your homeland, beauty! I’m sure it must feel great to be back and revisit some of your favorite spots, while discovering some new ones! The architecture and creativity in these buildings and restaurants are something special! I also love you in red, I know you mentioned it being your favorite color of the moment and it’s for good reason, it looks fabulous on you! I’m a native New Yorker and there are so many things I’ve yet to do and places I haven’t even visited that are such popular activities and attractions. You’ve certainly inspired me to explore my city with a different eye, perhaps I’ll do some touristing this summer! Thanks so much for the inspiration, beautiful, and I hope you’re having a great week so far!

    XO,
