Bucharest is the capital and largest city in Romania, as well as being a cultural, industrial and financial centre. It is located in the southeast of the country. In the early 20th century, Bucharest came to be known as the “Paris of the east” thanks to its Art Nouveau architecture and grand municipal buildings, often French-designed. This faded grandeur is now mixed with administrative buildings left behind from decades of communist rule such as the Palace of the Parliament, the 2nd largest building in the world (365,000 square metres). The town may be less classical now, but the hotch-potch of architecture makes for a unique and evocative aesthetic. (www.telegraph.co.uk)
