While traces of Communism (and the ever-popular Vlad the Impaler) are still evident in Bucharest, this is a city that's rapidly transforming into a cultural, financial, and industrial hub. With major international brands flocking to the city, this is also Romania's largest center for IT and communications services.
Zipping around Bucharest is easy, thanks to one of the largest public transport systems in all of Europe. It boasts an extensive metro system, as well as a network of buses, trams, trolleybuses, and light rail cars.
Explore the city to see some great museums, beautiful parks, and trendy cafes. And outdoor terraces abound here, practically rivaling Paris for its love of dining and drinking al fresco. But be aware that those terraces are about to get even more crowded: March 2016 marked the revolutionary indoor smoking ban in a city that was once dubbed "Europe's smoking section."
