Bucharest, the venue of the conference, is the largest city in Romania. The city is located in the southeast of the country on the banks of the Dambovita River, and was first mentioned in documents as early as 1459. Since then it has gone through a variety of changes, becoming the state capital of Romania in 1862 and steadily consolidating its position as the centre of the Romanian mass media, culture and arts. Its eclectic architecture is a mix of historical (neo-classical), interbellum (Bauhaus and Art Deco), Communist-era and modern. In recent years, the city has been experiencing an economic and cultural boom.
In Bucharest you will find majestic public buildings like the National History Museum and the main Post Office, whereas close to its Southern end there is the lovely Parcul Cismigiu (Cismigiu Park). Bulevardul (Boulevard) Magheru is parallel to Calea Victoriei and it hosts tourist and airline offices, cinemas and hotels.
You will be intrigued by the city’s eclectic mixture of architecture, from Curtea Veche, the remains of Prince Vlad Tepes 15th century palace – he was the city’s founder as well as the inspiration for “Dracula”, – to Orthodox Churches, Second Empire mansions, the stolid Stalinist architecture of the communist years and the colossal 6,000 room Parliament House, the second largest building in the world after the Pentagon.
