It sounds very good what you tell me!

Next days I will be in Bucharest and I've already put a few cool places on the list! From the transport point of view, I have solved using a quite praised rental service. I know that it is not okay to mention the company link, but I would like to mention the name of the company -snip- because they were the only prompts to the request I had and offered me all the support in order to be able to rent the car for my needs ???? I keep you informed by a new post in which I will tell you how it was in Romania!

Thanks a lot for answers! :)

I`m a native Romanian, so could help you confirm some tips.
Even though I am Romanian, but from the other side of the country, every single time I`ve been visiting Bucharest locals recognize the accent and they over charge you, in everything! Which is indeed frustrating as hindering the tourism immensely. So take previous posts advice for real, do not take yellow cabs, use uber instead at all means, not only they overcharge you but it`s a huge city, overcrowded and lots of traffic so they`d take you on longest and busiest routes possible as you`d not know anyway so a lot of wasted time as much as money.
Old town also known as Historical Center is a must to visit, also Parliament Palace/ square, great parks such as Herastrau, National Museum of natural history Grigore Antipa, you`ve got enough to see from beautiful paved streets,historical buildings, traditional food- very cheap - couple of pounds, one of the most animated nightlife in the country and one of top spa in Europe- in case you get a day off for relaxing is a must- Therme Spa. Regarding Brasov, yes, it`s totally worth it, where you get to see Dracula`s famous Castle- beware of vampires :) BUT on the way to Brasov you get another gem, Peles Castle - which is in Sinaia, in Bucegi Mountains, this is one of the most appreciated internationally and it`s about 1,5 hour away from Bucharest, easier to get to than Brasov.
People are friendly and do speak English, beware of thieves in Bucharest though.
Enjoy Romania!

I've been there like two years ago and want to share my experience. There is no need in renting a car because you can use public transport. It's not very hard to find a way somewhere. Prices are not very high, compared with German, for example. Stuff in hotels and restaurants knows English. As I said, I was in Romania 2 years ago, and something might have changed(prices, for example).

Hi, Ggina, hope you are having a great experience in Bucharest. I see our friends have given you enough information and correct information so far. Nowadays Bucharest is rather crowded, so avoid rush hours which are 8 - 11 AM and 5-8 PM. Also, use the subway to save time. As a local, I can surely give you some more tips so you are welcome to ask. Enjoy!
