About the location
Don't let the rough exterior of Bucharest scare you, peel back the layers. Quickly, you will discover a city filled with delicious food, a tough history, amazing museums, shopping, and the kindest people. Bucharest has something for everyone in your party. It is a great girls getaway, but there is also a lot to do for families as well. Everyone should hear Bucharest's history at some point, but history buffs will thoroughly enjoy it.
It is extremely easy to get around, very walkable, but they have a metro that felt completely safe and was easy to navigate as well. Ubers are also in abundance and cheap.

Free Walking Tour
This was the highlight of our trip. Our kids absolutely loved it, we all learned a lot about the history of Bucharest as well as Romania.
Hands down some of the best food we have ever eaten was in Bucharest. Lots of gluten free recommendations.
If you love food, I have you covered friends! We don't normally eat out because it is just too expensive for our family of five. We found that Bucharest had a lot of very affordable meals. I have included a long list of cafes, and sit down restaurants. Also, I tell you where to get the best local wine. Most of them were very affordable, but I tell you if they are pricier. I also include which ones are gluten free and which ones to stay away from. Most of them are from Old Town because we spent a lot of time there, and it is my favorite part of the city, but you will find others outside of Old Town as well.
I have included a long list of hotels as well as Airbnb's in the area. Some are extremely affordable, some more pricey than others. Most of them are family friendly as well.
You will find ideas on things to do with your children. As well as where to find the best markets-they don't call it Little Paris for nothing. Did you know there are some hidden gems in Bucharest? I have included those in there as well.
Lastly, you will find some packing tips as well as a tipping and etiquette suggestions.
Save yourself time and money searching for the best of the best in Bucharest. It is printer friendly as well, but has links to hotel and airbnb recommendations for your convenience.
