Bucharest* (Bucuresti) is the capital municipality, cultural, industrial, and financial centre of Romania. It is the largest city in Romania, located in the southeast of the country, lies on the banks of the Dâmbovita River, less than 70 kilometres (43 mi) north of the Danube.
Bucharest was first mentioned in documents in 1459. It became the capital of Romania in 1862 and is the centre of Romanian media, culture and art. Its architecture is a mix of historical (neo-classical), interbellum (Bauhaus and Art Deco), Communist-era and modern. In the period between the two World Wars, the city’s elegant architecture and the sophistication of its elite earned Bucharest the nickname of “Little Paris” (Micul Paris). Although buildings and districts in the historic city centre were heavily damaged or destroyed by war, earthquakes, and above all Ceau?escu‘s program of systematization, many survived. In recent years, the city has been experiencing an economic and cultural boom.
Economically, Bucharest is the most prosperous city in Romania and is one of the main industrial centres and transportation hubs of Eastern Europe. The city has big convention facilities, educational institutes, cultural venues, traditional “shopping arcades” and recreational areas.
The city proper is administratively known as “The Municipality of Bucharest” (Municipiul Bucuresti), and has the same administrative level as that of a national county, being further subdivided into six sectors.
Bucharest has a transitional climate, with both continental and subtropical influences. Owing to its position on the Romanian Plain, the city’s winters can get windy, even though some of the winds are mitigated due to urbanisation. During spring and autumn, daytime temperatures vary between 17 to 22 °C (63 to 72 °F), and precipitation during this time tends to be higher than in summer, with more frequent yet milder periods of rain.
Bucharest’s public transport system is the largest in Romania and one of the largest in Europe. It is made up of the Bucharest Metro, as well as a surface transport system run by RATB (Regia Autonoma de Transport Bucuresti), which consists of buses, trams,trolleybuses, and light rail. In addition, there is a private minibus system. As of 2007, there is a limit of 10,000 taxicab licenses.
Bucharest is the hub of Romania’s national railway network, run by Caile Ferate Romane. The main railway station is Gara de Nord (“North Station”), which provides connections to all major cities in Romania as well as international destinations:
Bulgaria: Sofia, Varna
Ukraine: Kiev, Chernivtsi, Lviv
The city has five other railway stations run by CFR, the most important of which are Basarab (adjacent to North Station), Obor, B?neasa and Progresu. These are in the process of being integrated into a commuter railway serving Bucharest and the surrounding Ilfov County. Seven main lines radiate out of Bucharest.
Bucharest has two international airports:
