Besides, its history and its own charm, Bucharest offers everything what a European capital city can offer - starting with all kind of museums and theatres, where we can arrange tickets (the theatres, the Opera and the Operetta are usually closed from end June to mid-September), to discos and night-clubs. Despite the fact that under communist rule part of the city has been destroyed, despite social problems of more recent periods, Bucharest is, as always, the most beautiful and diverse city in the region. A simple tour of Bucharest is not enough to know a city. A lifetime would rather be the period one should dedicate to Bucharest.
