Know that when you travel to Romania and most specifically Bucharest, it’s capital, it’s not all about communism. Sure, it was a big part of Romania’s history and the architecture bears the marks, but the country was also a monarchy and has the sights to prove it. Also, after 1989 when Romania became a democracy, the newfound freedom translated into more nightclubs, hip meeting places, modern establishments and everything that has to do with an open market such as supermarket and international fast food chains, outlets, and malls.
