Bucharest is more often described as a city of contrasts than a romantic destination. Nevertheless, the city once known as Little Paris, has options for those looking for a moment of love and magic.

A walk in the park with a boatride

Some of Bucharest’s main parks offer the option of trying a boat ride. Among them are King Michael Park (formerly Herăstrău) or the Alexandru Ioan Cuza Park. The first is much larger and its Japanese Garden and Rose Island look beautiful during spring. It is also close to the Dimitrie Gusti Village Museum, a must-see for anyone.

A visit at the Botanical Garden

An oasis of quiet in an otherwise noisy city, the Botanical Garden is one of the capital’s least crowded parks, especially during the week. Its wide alleys, many ponds over 5,000 species of plants invite visitors to relax and take things at a different pace. The Botanical Garden is located in the neighborhood of Cotroceni, one of the capital’s greenest and most elegant.

A night of poetry

The nocturnes, which happen during the summer months, combine meetings with contemporary poets, readings and debates, music and jam sessions, all against the views available from the Magheru One terrace.
