Best things to do in Bucharest

One of the best things to do in Bucharest is Clubbing. Bucharest is famous for its effervescent night life due to the low-priced drinks and the fact that you can still smoke just about anywhere you like. There are clubs for each taste: from fancy posh expensive Bamboo and Fratelli to live music cozy places like Music Club and Prometheus. Clubbing in Bucharest can be whatever you wanted to be as there is a large diversity of places where you can dance, sing, listen to live music, admiring hot showgirls entertaining the atmosphere, getting into theme nights or just enjoying  amazing cocktails.

Take a boat ride on Herastrau Lake
Herastrau Park is on the list of the best things to do in Bucharest. It is the largest and the most beautiful park in Bucharest. It’s a place full of restaurants, cafes and home to many open-air activities so, the park itself is a great attraction. But nothing compares to a small trip with the boat on the massive lake. You can choose between a two-person boat with paddles, a small sail, a hydro-bike, a canoe or a larger shared boat or you may even try some water sports. Either way, you will enjoy a relaxing time, far from the city’s noise and great sceneries.

Escape Rooms
This is a great alternative for an afternoon fun along with some friends. The concept is quite new in the world but became rapidly very popular. Escape Rooms is actually a game that takes place into a single room, based on clues and riddles. The players must work together and try to solve the game within 60 minutes. Everything is very intense: the pressure of the limited time, trying to solve the clues as fast as possible, putting all the pieces together and listening to each other. It’s a great de-stress activity and a nice way of rebounding with your friends. Put this on your list of best things to do in Bucharest!

Things to do in Bucharest

Horse ride in Mogosoaia
Only 15 kilometres far from Bucharest centre is the lovely Mogosoaia domain, consisting of a large forest, a nice lake, a beautiful 17th century monastery and a royal palace dating since 1702. Near the lake there is a famous riding club which offers tourists a large variety of activities like riding lessons, romantic carriage rides and also horseback riding tours. What I strongly recommend you are the horseback riding tours which will give you the possibility of relaxing in the middle of the nature but still, so close to the city’s heart. Plus, Mogosoaia monastery and Mogosoaia Palace with its charming royal court are the perfect place for a short insight into the extraordinary past of this place. How could you miss this one from all the amazing things to do in Bucharest?

Have a cold beer at Caru’ cu Bere
Caru cu Bere restaurant (the translation would be the Beer Cart) is one of Bucharest’s landmarks. This 19th century charming inn is located in the centre of Bucharest and has an amazing architecture and a very interesting history. It seems that its name comes from the fact that, in the past, the beer was brought from a nearby brewery in large barrels loaded in carts. Nowadays, the beer of the house is produced after a secret recipe in Tuborg brewery, which is special closed one day per month for making this delicious drink. So, there is nothing more perfect for a hot summer day than a big pint of fresh cold beer of the house. And you should also know that Caru’ cu Bere is a place where, with a bit of luck, you can meet celebrities like the Rolling Stones, Demi Moore or Jon Voight. Now, this place must be on the list of best things to do in Bucharest, right?
