Host City

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 – Romania’s largest city is today a bustling metropolis, the capital city of Romania.

Among the key points that should not be missed may be mentioned the colossal Parliament Palace – the world’s second-largest office building in surface (after the Pentagon) and the third largest in volume (after Cape Canaveral in the U.S. and the Great Pyramid in Egypt) … or the remains of the Old Princely Court, built in the 15th century by Vlad Tepes, also known as Vlad Dracula (The Impaler) … or the Old City Centre – Lipscani area , currently home to many art galleries, antique shops and coffeehouses.
