A great way to begin your visit here is by heading to the largest and most famous building in the whole city, the Parliament Palace, which is located near the city centre. Built in the 1980s, the palace is to this day the second largest building in the world, and a truly impressive sight to say the least!

After seeing the extreme developed side of the city, jump in your car hire and head north of the city centre, to where you can visit the Village Museum, an outdoor recreated village setting, showing the traditional way of life in the area.

Romania is a country blessed with great natural beauty. From mountain ranges and dense ancient forests, to rich wildlife, there is lots to see. To find out a little about the natural past of the country, drive your car hire east of the Village Museum, where you can visit the Natural History Museum, a great insight into the natural side of Eastern Europe.

Not far from here you can visit a great historic site, the Plumbuita Monastary, built in the 16th century, and still standing proud. Today the monastery also contains a museum filled with religious objects from Romania’s past. The monastery is just one of many great historic buildings in the city, and you can see them all with the freedom that comes with your hire car through DriveAway.
