Ole Bucharest! The city is a beautiful as the n a me is. I visited in winter and spent two whole days there.
I travelled from Brasov to Bucharest, the journey by train took about 3 hours, since I was a student my ticket (inclusive of the return trip) cost me about 45 lei (10 Euros maybe).
Relying on googlemaps, I was able to use only the public transport through out my stay in bucharest (buses + metro). A single way ticket cost 2 lei. I ended up using public transport only from and to train station. As I stayed at Old Town, every place worth sightseeing was of walkable distance, the farthest was parliament.
Old and beautiful. From the train station I went straight to the old town, so perhaps am being biased, but this is what I saw.
Really Nice people. For me, a simple way to determine this is by asking for directions from strangers, if they can spare you a glance or some time, it says something about those people.
Train ticket – 46 lei
Two days accommodation (hostel cost)- 60 lei
Breakfast- 6 lei
Main meal- 24 lei (max for me, but this was applicable to many restaurants, in Old Town, most restaurants advertise their menu on its outside). So I think in total I spent about 200 lei ( for two days, including eating, shopping in bucharest)
Sightseeing : Big, old and beautiful churches (no cost) Most monuments I visited we couldn’t get in, perhaps winter timing, parliament was closed at the time. And others I had free entry.
In total, I spent about 240 lei for my two days trip in B, about 50 euros.
There’s actually a lot to see and do in Bucharest, much more than my pictures show. Its totally worth visiting and Old town is a great vplace to be at. You can just feel the ‘touristy’ atmosphere. It remains lively day and night, I can only imaginebhow boisterous it is in winter.
I admit,this pist was written in a hurried fashion, regardless, I hope you could pick up a thing or two from this.
