Bucharest - A short account of a long history Bucharest, the capital of Romania, is situated in the south eastern corner of the Romanian Plain. The city has an area of approximately 228 square kilometres. Although situated in a vast plain, the cityâ€™s terrain is not entirely flat: a few hills (Radu Voda, Mitropoliei, Cotroceni, Spirii) with a maximum altitude that does not exceed 100 m.
The city showcases not only many beautiful parks and gardens but the main streets are also bordered with trees and flowers. DĂ˘mbovita River and a significant number of lakes formed around the city bring coolness in the usual hot summer days. The cityâ€™s population is approximately 2.300.000 inhabitants. People contributed to what is characteristic of these wonderful places: not so much greatness, but serenity; not so much elegance, but charm; not so much rigor and order but fantasy and warmth. Fruit of the symbiosis between the Western world and the Orient, Bucharest amazes the visitor by simply stumbling upon an ordinary house or by entering a small old church, hidden behind the modern blocks. A true European capital. A city that deserves recognition.
