The booming city of Bucharest is a sophisticated metropolis with a high contrast of old- and new-world architecture.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at AFI Cotroceni and Baneasa Shopping City. Attractions like Patriarchal Cathedral and Biserica Sfantul Anton - Curtea Veche make great kid-friendly stops. There's much more to do: stop by Carturesti Carusel, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, get a new perspective on nature at Grigore Antipa National Museum of Natural History, and admire the striking features of Muzeul National al Satului "Dimitrie Gusti".
