1. Carousel Carousel
Address: Lipscani str., No. 55
The above picture was taken in Carturesti Carusel. This place is one of the most beautiful book stores in the world, and of course, one of the most instagrammable places in Bucharest. Picturesque, white and clean, full of good books, tea, coffee, and other goodies, is a must-see place.
2. Romanian Athenaeum
Address: Franklin Street, no. 1-3
Beyond beautiful, the Romanian Athenaeum is a concert hall in the center of Bucharest. The ornate, domed, circular building surrounded by an elegant garden full of blooming flowers is one of the places you can't miss.
3. Capitol Hotel, Victory Avenue
Address: Victory Avenue, no. 29
Whether you choose to take the pictures early in the morning or at lunch, this place is full of charm and elegance. That is why I would recommend you to wear a sophisticated outfit as I did in the picture on the left. Pro tip: in order to get the best pictures, go there at sunset. Believe me, the images will look stunning!
4. National Museum of Romanian History
Address: Victory Avenue, no. 12
Let's stay a little longer on this avenue since it is one of the most famous tourist attractions in Bucharest! Here you will find the National Museum of Romanian History, a place full of meanings in what concerns Romanian artifacts. The imposing frontal view and the beautiful stairs make this place a great spot to visit (and take photos, of course).
5. The central fountains
Address: Union Square, no. 2
Moving a little bit to the city center, we discover the fountains that were recently inaugurated and which offer a great show. The steam produced by the water that seems to dance and the charm given by the elegant construction is the ideal background of a great picture. Pro tip: Stay at the show at night. You will listen to popular songs and watch creative light effects on the water.
