Bucharest unveils its full glory twice a year: during autumn and spring. Then you can leisurely explore the city without the summer heat or moody winter weather. Strolls in the city center are highly appreciated due to the wide sidewalks, pedestrian crossings, and green spaces. Joy City‘s oldest and most beautiful street in Bucharest is Calea Victoriei (Victory Avenue). Taking a tour here you will have a pretty good idea about the history of Romania’s capital. As regards its present, the Little Paris is one of the European cities with the fastest internet connections. It also hosts a lot of international IT companies like IBM. And since locals really love programming, at Microsoft, Romanian became the second most spoken language (after English).

Built in traditional French style, this stylish historical hotel still is one of the most prestigious hotels of Bucharest. Its smaller rooms preserved some of the original white furniture. Here, you will feel exactly like one of the ambassadors or other VIPs who visited it before. Prince Napoleon – cousin of Napoleon III – stayed here during a diplomatic visit to Carol I of Hohenzollern. Also the renowned French merchant Jobin who marked incredibly powerfully those times’ fashion world.

Even today, Romanians call the top hat brought by him from France, joben. Russo-Turkish war ended after the defeat of Ottoman troops at Plevna in 1877. Before his deportation to Russia, Osman Pasha, hostage within apartment 104, has watched the victory march. When Prince Carol I’s troops were passing along Mogosoaia Bridge, Osman Pasha saluted Carol I from his apartment’s window. That march changed the name of Bucharest’s oldest and most important boulevard into Victory Avenue.

If you are looking for a luxury hotel in the heart of Bucharest with a really beautiful outdoor swimming pool for the hot summer days this is definitely the place to come.

This traditional Romanian restaurant really is a hidden gem that never disappointed us.
The staff is incredibly welcoming even with guests in a hurry.
They show an impressive promptitude.
The atmosphere of the restaurant differentiate it from the rest.
Every evening there is a folk show , a little loud if you like to speak during dinner.
In the summer you can enjoy the beautiful relaxing terrace even if it is raining.

Plus the food is shockingly affordably priced considering the ingredients’ quality and tastiness.
Chicken turreted with broccoli saute and Bear meat with honey mushrooms are the most mouth-watering dishes we served there.

“Due to unexpected events we had to change the booking, then delay the visit.
The staff was extremely professional and bore with us.
When we finally reached there we had the pleasure to rediscover the same great cuisine – surprisingly presented – in an old beautifully restored mansion on Victory Avenue.
Not for nothing some say this is one of the 2 restaurants in Romania which are the closest to Michelin star restaurants !”
