Let’s see what is nearby – in 3 minutes walk you can enter Cismigiu Garden from Stirbei Voda street. Entrance in the park is next to Kretzulescu Palace. During summer and autumn you can hang around this beautiful park, rent a boat or just sit and drink a refreshing coffee in the morning.

Next stop is Revolution square who gained worldwide notoriety when TV stations around the globe broadcasted Nicolae Ceausescu’s final moments in power on December 21, 1989. It was here, at the balcony of the former Communist Party Headquarters, that Ceausescu stared in disbelief as the people gathered in the square below turned on him. He fled the angry crowd in his white helicopter, only to be captured outside of the city a few hours later.

But this is not everything.  On the far side of the square stands the former Royal Palace, now home to the National Art Museum, the stunning Romanian Athenaeum and the historical  Athenee Palace Hotel (now Hilton)  At the south end of the square, you can visit the small, but beautiful, Kretzulescu Church.

The Athenaeum is the work of French architect Albert Galleron, who also designed the National Bank of Romania. This building was completed in 1888, financed almost entirely with money donated by the general public. With its high dome and Doric columns, the Athenaeum resembles an ancient temple.

After a short walk from Revolution Sqare you can arrive to Magheru Boulevard and Romana Square (by the way here stops bus 783 which connect you to the international airport) or through Calea Victoriei to the Old Town.

The area behind Athenee Palace Hilton hotel is full with restaurants and small terraces – an ideal place to have your lunch. Keep in mind that between 12 am and 4 pm most of the restaurants gives happy hour set menus at cheap prices.
