Bucharest – a cheap european destination
With summer just around the corner it is time to plan for a cheap european holiday. There are not a lot of cheap holiday destinations in Europe, but there are a few. Bucharest is one of them. You can read a bit about Bucharest here along with some ideas for activities with kids and tips for cheap accommodation with kids.
If you are searching for cheap destinations within Europe search no more. Romania is the answer. The old city of Bucharest is rather charming. It is known for its wide, tree-lined boulevards, glorious Belle Époque buildings and a reputation for the high life (which in the 1900s earned its nickname of “Little Paris”), Bucharest is Romania’s largest city and capital.
