After lunchtime, you will visit the Village Museum where you’ll discover the powerful contrasting shades of a society equally represented by modernity and tradition.
In the afternoon you’ll take a stroll through the charming historical center (the old town) and pause for a well-deserved coffee break in Bucharest’s famous age-old inn: Hanul lui Manuc (Manuc’s Inn). See some of the beautiful buildings in the city such as the Romanian Athenaeum, located in the city center, the Stavropoleos Church, or some of Bucharest’s boutique hotels.

On the second day of the Bucharest city break, you will visit the Palace of Parliament, the colossal construction built in the communist days in the virtue of the principle that reasonable size does not exist.
