EasyJet, Europe’s leading low-fares airline, announced the introduction of a new daily route to Bucharest from October 29th which represents the airline’s commitment to growth in Central Eastern Europe.
Located on the Dambovita River, the historic Romanian capital was once known as ‘Little Paris’ thanks to its French inspired architecture and is now returning to its former cosmopolitan glory after overthrowing the communist regime in 1989. With its renewed vigour focusing on tourism, this friendly city provides a fascinating mixture of history and cultural heritage combining Romanian aristocracy, French and German influences and communist society. The city is home to a variety of museums, art galleries, concert halls and 18th and 19th century palaces on wide tree lined boulevards. The most famous sights being the city’s very own Triumphal Arch on the elegant Soseaua Kiseleff boulevard, the grand Royal Palace and the majestic Palace of Parliament - the world’s second largest building after the US Pentagon, which is a powerful reminder of the communist years. Bucharest is also well known for vibrant nightlife, with a wide range of bars and cool nightclubs for partying until the early hours or for gambling away your Romanian Leu (the local currency) at one of the converted 18th century palace casinos.
This new route will undoubtely increase the level of interest by foreign investors looking to purchase properties in Bucharest.
