Top Attractions in Bucharest, Romania

Palace of the Parliament, Bucharest

First visit: November 2017
Photography: Arthur Jeciel

A few weeks ago, I visited Bucharest Romania for the first time and despite the cold weather, I was able to explore and enjoy what the city has to offer. The Old Town is definitely not to be missed with all its al fresco restaurants, old church, museums, etc. I was also able to do the half day tour to Mogosoaia Palace and the Snagov Monastery where you'd find the tomb of Dracula, both of which are highly recommended. In case you are traveling to Bucharest in the future, here are some of my travel tips:
