This bustling metropolis has countless points of interest. But for a quick taste of its architectural richness, the tourist should stroll along Calea Victoriei - the oldest (1692) and most charming avenue in Bucharest. Here many of the city's icons wait to be admired, including the Cantacuzino Palace, the Revolution Square, the Romanian Athenaeum, the Military Club, the CEC Headquarters and the National History Museum. Other not-to-be-missed edifices and places are the Arch of Triumph, the Royal Palace, Kretzulescu Church and the old historical center. But probably the most impressive sight in Bucharest is the Parliament Palace. Built in the communist epoch, this colossal structure is the second largest administrative building in the world after the Pentagon.

Surrounded by the summits of the Carpathian Mountains, this stunning medieval city is blessed with an abundance of Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance architecture.

Among Brasov's iconic historical and cultural sights are the Black Church, the Council Square, the striking St. Nicholas Church and the Brasov Fortress. The Black Church is the largest Gothic church east of Vienna. The name comes from its dark walls that survived a destructive fire in 1689.

Built in the 13th century, they feature massive walls and defending towers. Also close by is Poiana Brasov mountain resort, which is a world-renowned ski destination.

The Count's mansion is just one of the countless attractions here.
