Bucharest
The booming city of Bucharest is a sophisticated metropolis with a high contrast of old- and new-world architecture.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Mogosoaia Palace and Parcul Alexandru Ioan Cuza. Change things up with these side-trips from Bucharest: Chindiei Tower (Sunset Tower) (in Targoviste) and The Clock Museum (in Ploiesti). The adventure continues: pause for some serene contemplation at Biserica Stavropoleos, see the interesting displays at The Art Collections Museum, awaken your taste buds at some of the top wineries in the area, and get a sense of history and politics at Palace of Parliament.

For more things to do, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Bucharest tour planner.

If you are flying in from Israel, the closest major airport is Henri Coandă International Airport. In December, daytime highs in Bucharest are 5°C, while nighttime lows are -2°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
