Scenesters are on a constant state of alert for Europe’s latest happening city. Prague, Tallinn and Bratislava have all had their turn, but recently the Romanian capital Bucharest has been appearing on plenty of must-see lists.

Bucharest has taken a little longer than those cities to emerge from its Soviet-era obscurity, but these days there is a positive vibe about the place as it develops a cultural confidence and attracts growing numbers of visitors.

Today’s Big Deal, courtesy of My Holidays Now, introduces you to this vibrant city. Explore this historic and intriguing metropolis from the comfort of your central hotel and enjoy a city break with a difference.

Balkan boulevards

The Big Deal, exclusive to 5pm customers, flies you to the Romanian capital Bucharest. The comfortable and stylish central hotel provides a great base for a superb city break, with the opportunity to uncover the secrets of this remarkable city.

The Big Deal offers return flights with Wizzair from Glasgow International, with generous luggage allowance, and three nights B&B accommodation, based on two sharing a twin or double room, in the 4 star Golden Tulip Times Hotel.

Central accommodation

The 4 star Golden Tulip Times Hotel is centrally located in the modern heart of the city, close to the National Arena, University Square, Bucharest Mall and Titan Park. The major sightseeing attractions of the old quarter are just a few minutes away. There is a metro station within eight minutes walk.

The hotel features 70 spacious guestrooms with warm, contemporary décor, all equipped with private bathroom, air conditioning, cable tv and Wi-Fi. Some rooms also feature a balcony.

Hotel amenities include a restaurant, offering a varied buffet breakfast followed by à la carte local and international specialities at lunch and dinner. There is also a stylish coffee bar and the panoramic skyline club on the hotel’s top floor. 

Bucharest highlights

Bucharest’s appeal lies in its blend of Soviet-era edifices and more immediately-charming tourist attractions. The city is like no other in Europe, and each corner offers intriguing possibilities.

The Palace of Parliament is not to be missed (although that would be difficult as it is the world’s second largest building after the Pentagon). This lavish creation of the dictator Nicolae Ceausescu has over 3000 rooms, and architecture that veers from monumental to kitsch.

At the other end of the scale, the Caru’ c Bere is a charming old beer hall with an ornate Belle Epoque décor and stained glass windows. It’s a great place for a drink or an authentic Romanian meal.

Bucharest’s bar and club scene is booming, with new venues opening all the time. Hang out with the locals at places like Gradina Verona, a garden café bar famous for its distinctive iced-tea cocktails. It’s an ideal oasis of calm in the heart of the city.
