Bucharest, the capital of Romania, is the largest city and the main political, administrative, economic, financial, educational, academic and cultural center of the country. Bucharest, a capital which was first time mentioned more than 500 years ago, is nowadays animated by a population of almost two million inhabitants. Today, the city is a mix of old and new, traditional and modern, in a neoclassical style that is showing originality and charm. In 2012, Bucharest ranked second among Europe’s ‘coolest’ cities, according to a top published by the online magazine slate.fr, taking into account several criteria, such as the price of beer, the number of students in the city and the number of neighborhoods where tourists and residents can have fun.
