Bucharest is a bizarre juxtaposition of Soviet stoicism with Art Nouveau whimsy. You cannot miss the grotesquely majestic Palace of the Parliament building - with a flamboyant throwback to Baroque. Broad brick boulevards and blocks of building hide the tiny sidestreets of Bucharest in which faded villas with beautiful Art Nouveau period stained glass windows catch the rays of the sun. Majestically grand, the Bucharest Opera House dominates the city center and continues to be a premier venue for ballet, symphony and opera. A bustling city full of life, Bucharest continues to be at the heart of Romanian economics, politics and culture. Explore the depths of this intriguing city with Exeter International.
