City & Venue

City


Bucharest was first mentioned in documents in 1459. It became the capital of Romania in 1862 and is the centre of Romanian media, culture, and art.

Its architecture is a mix of historical (neo-classical), interbellum (Bauhaus and art deco), communist-era and modern. In the period between the two World Wars, the city's elegant architecture and the sophistication of its elite earned Bucharest the nickname of "Little Paris" (Micul Paris). Although buildings and districts in the historic city centre were heavily damaged or destroyed by war, earthquakes, and above all the comunist program of systematization, many survived. In recent years, the city has been experiencing an economic and cultural boom.

Located in the southeast of the country, less than 60 km north of the Danube River and the Bulgarian border, Bucharest is the largest city of Romania and the sixth-largest city in the European Union by population within city limits, after London, Berlin, Madrid, Rome, and Paris.

Health Regulation: No international immunization is needed when entering Romania. However, be sure to familiarize yourself with the rules and regulations of all countries through which you may have to pass on your way to Romania.

Taxis: Taxis in Bucharest may be ordered by phone or mobile applications, picked up at authorized taxi stands or flagged down in the street. Always check that the meter is running. The normal rate is around 0.30 €/ km. Taxis must be paid in cash. Uber is also frequently used in Bucharest.

Public Transport and Car Rental: Bucharest has a big public transport network bus, tram and metro. The ticket prices vary for metro or bus, but the price is around 0.50 €/ ticket. Taxis are abundant and reasonably priced, but the drivers are not always polite or friendly. Free parking is limited in the city center and car parks are just a few, so car rental is only really recommended for excursions outside the city.

Smoking: Smoking is banned in all enclosed public spaces throughout Romania including conference venues, shops, restaurants, pubs and hotel bedrooms.
