Bucharest a is a dynamic and fun city. In the Romanian capital, you will find modern architecture mixed with communist buildings, as well as, beautiful orthodox churches that date back to the 17th and 18th century.
The Old Town is the best place to explore Bucharest’s history and have lunch at the local restaurants. The Triumphant Arch and the Romanian Athenaeum are one of the main attractions you can’t miss, as well as, the imposing Palace of Parliament which was the masterpiece in Nicolae Ceausescu’s urban plan. We suggest visiting the National History Museum, the National Village Museum and the National Art Museum.
The public transport in Bucharest is accessible and cheap. It is part of the locals’ everyday life. The buses, trolleybuses and trams cover almost every part of the city and they run daily from 04:30 to 23:00. After that, night buses take over which depart from Piata Unirii. These three types of transportation have unified ticketing system.
The metro is a fast way to get around the city. There are four metro lines which serve the city. Tickets can be bought at the metro stations. Tourists can use the M2 line which runs from north to south (Pipera to Berceni). This line makes stops at Piata Romana, Piata Unirii, Piata Victoriei and Piata Universitati. The M1 and M3 lines serve Gara de Nord and residential areas.
Taking a taxi in Bucharest is a fast way to reach your destination. Be careful and take only licensed taxis which have the company name and phone displayed on the vehicle. Pay attention to the driver and passenger doors where the tariff should be displayed. It’s easy to get ripped off by scam taxi drivers, especially around the airports and Gara de Nord.
Bucharest Henri Coanda International Airport or known as Otopeni airport is the main hub for arriving in the capital. It’s located 16 km north of Bucharest city centre. The other airport serving this area is the Aurel Vlaicu Airport or better known as Baneasa airport, was transformed into a business airport and doesn’t handle passenger traffic since 2012.
Bucharest Otopeni airport is well connected to the city via public transport, airport taxi and private airport transfer. There are two express buses running from the airport. Express route 780 connects the airport to the Gara de Nord, while Express route 783 runs 24/7 and will take you to the city centre. The train station is 900 m from the airport and a shuttle bus will take you there. The train runs directly from the airport station to Gara du Nord.
Since there were many scams by taxi drivers at the Otopeni airport, there were some changes introduced and you can order an airport taxi on a touch screen in the Arrivals area. However, it can get crowded in front of the taxi order screen, so it might be wiser for you to arrange a private Bucharest airport taxi in advance.
Bucharest Baneasa airport is located 8 km from the city centre and you can travel by buses 131 and 135, the Express Route 783, tramway 5 and an airport taxi.
