Bucharest is the capital of Romania, situated in southeastern Europe. It's a city with a mix of architectural styles, reflecting its long history.

Here you'll find Stavropoleos Church, a beautiful example of Romanian Orthodox architecture, and Curtea Veche, the ruins of an old princely court.

Bucharest also has grander buildings, like the Palace of the Parliament, one of the largest parliament buildings in the world. There are several museums to visit, including the National Museum of Romanian History and the Village Museum, which has open-air exhibits of traditional Romanian houses and buildings.
