The taxi rank at the airport is managed by a high-tech touchscreen system, which helps to keep illegal cabs out. Car hire at Bucharest Airport is also available.
When to visit Bucharest
Bucharest is the capital of Romania, so there's something going on whatever time of year you visit. You'll get the best weather from April to October, although June is the wettest month – it rains 14 days out of 30 on average, so pack your umbrella.
The weather in Bucharest
The weather in Bucharest is more extreme than in Ireland, with lovely summers and freezing winters. During January it can get as cold as -5°C. Below freezing temperatures are also common during December and February, so it's a good time to visit if you're a bit of a snow bunny. On the other hand, it can get as hot as 30°C during July and August. May and September are the most comfortable times of year to visit, with temperatures sitting in the low twenties.
Things to do in Bucharest
Romania's capital city isn't as gorgeous as other European capitals, but what it lacks in looks it makes up for in style. From Communist era buildings to the old fortress where Vlad the Impaler once lived, there are plenty of cultural attractions to keep the most avid history buffs entertained. The old town (lipscani) has a lively nightlife, and the bars buzz into the small hours every night of the week. Romanian wine hasn't quite made its way onto Irish supermarket shelves yet, so it would be rude not to taste it during your trip – especially since the country is one of Europe's largest producers.
Top attractions: Palace of the Parliament, Herastrau Park, Romanian Athenaeum, Arcul de Triumf, Lipscani
