Romania's capital is a multi-faceted city, reflecting its tumultuous history. Its Lipscani district recalls the old mercantile city straddling East and West. From its time as voivod capital, Bucharest retains 17C Wallachian churches. The 20C saw neo-Classical building projects turn it into a "little Paris", a golden age that ended with the Second World War. Ceaucescu's era was one of concrete and urban desecration. While its architecture may not be seductive, its museums are a real delight.
