Travel guide from Alex

Journalist student, urban explorer

A tourist in my own town. 


Love/Hate Bucharest:


Bucharest is a mix from the architectural point of view and not only. It is full of secret places waiting to be discovered. Most of these beautiful things are hidden and one cannot easily find them on the internet. 


I don’t like though the hullabaloo taking over a big part of the city.   

Travel tips from Alex:

FOOD: Springtime and KFC

DAY: Cismigiu Park, Gradina Icoanei Park, the Botanical Garden, buildings roofs and abandoned houses, Argentin Bar – people there are varied and the ambiance is tranquil; Bistro Tormen – a restaurant bar, accidentally having a communist era look.  

NIGHT: Bar Argentin, Club A - a good place to dance, Panic! - a good place to sit and chat on comfortable sofas in the back.

SHOPPING - Ex-Libris second hand and antique bookstores near Universitate Square – you can find all sort of books at bargain prices

CULTURE  - Carol 53 – an independent young cultural centre

BUCHAREST DISCOVERY – the roofs and terraces of some buildings around the Military Circle
