Bucuresti is the name of the Romanian capital, but it’s widely known as Bucharest probably because the people of Western Europe found it easier to pronounce. Visitors love this city with majestic boulevards lined with trees and elegant buildings.
In the 1900s Bucuresti had earned the nickname of Little Paris and attracted hordes of travelers except during Nicolae Ceausescu’s oppressive rule. His life and regime having ended a long ago, Bucuresti – or Bucharest – has again become a popular tourist destination and there isn’t any dearth of hotels to take care of them.
