The city is rapidly gaining attention as a competitive city break that blends the wonders of modern Europe with the far flung exotism of the East. For some of us, București is just the city where you can see Ceaușescu’s Palace (People”s Palace or Palace of Parliament), for others it will always remain "The Little Paris" of the East. In fact, Little Paris is considered to be also an era in the history of București and traces of them can still be admired today in the architecture of palaces, public buildings and hotels.
