Bucharest is the capital city as well as and the economic, administrative, and cultural centre of Romania. It is located in the southeast part of the country, and lies on the banks of Dâmboviţa River, a tributary of the Danube. Between the two World Wars, the city’s elegant architecture, the art nouveau palaces, and the sophistication of its elite earned Bucharest the nickname of “Little Paris” or “Paris of the East”.
Bucharest’s economy is mainly centred on services (over 70% of the employees), followed by construction, manufacturing and public administration.
The capital city is the most important financial hub, and the largest centre for information technology and communications with a highly educated workforce.
The average commute time is 45 minutes.
The most important centres for higher education are the Politehnica University of Bucharest (founded 1818), the University of Bucharest (founded 1864 from institutions dating to 1694), the School of Economics, and the Medical University. In addition, there are several academies in both arts and sciences, numerous research institutes, three central libraries, and a large number of public library units
Bucharest is a lively city, with vibrant culture where a rich history merges with its modern identity.
The confluence of architecture is fascinating with Byzantine buildings, Art Nouveau mansions and spectacular Neoclassical facades blending together.
