Bucharest has been undergoing a period of rebirth since its 1989 revolution that brought down the repressive communist regime of Nicolae Ceaucescu. The scars of the past are beginning to disappear as new modern buildings are being built. Now is the perfect time to visit Romania’s “Little Paris” and experience its beautiful buildings before the secret is out.
