Bucuresti

Its eclectic architecture is a mix of historical (neo-classical), interbellum (Bauhaus and Art Deco), Communist-era and modern. In the period between the two World Wars, the city‘s elegant architecture and the sophistication of its elite earned Bucharest the nickname of the „Little Paris of the East“.
