A couple’s city break in Bucharest?
Bucharest might not be the first city you associate with romance, but hear us out.
Bucharest was once known as Little Paris after all, due to the city’s gorgeous architecture. So it does have a link to the unofficial romance capital of the world.
But Bucharest offers couples looking for a romantic break in Bucharest much more than just aesthetically pleasing buildings. Not convinced? Let us show you the most romantic places in Bucharest.
A stroll through a pretty park holding hands sounds like the stuff of romantic movies. Parks aren’t much prettier than Cișmigiu Gardens in the centre of Bucharest. Heck, Cișmigiu Gardens even inspired Romania’s greatest poet, Eminescu.
Lush greens provide a contrast from the bustling streets which surround Cișmigiu Gardens.
Share an ice cream on a sunny day walking around the fountains and winding paths which eventually lead to the picture perfect lake. The ideal location for *cough* proposing…
Seal the rom com dream by hiring a boat and gently sail into the sunset.
Ceainaria Bohemia Tea House
A short walk from Cișmigiu Gardens is Ceainaria Bohemia Tea House.
You’ll probably be thirsty from all that walking (and kissing) so clench your thirst with some delicious tea.
No tea is that romantic. We’ve picked Ceainaria Bohemia Tea House for our list of romantic places in Bucharest for its cute secret garden.
The roof is covered by green vines which break up the light to create a natural disco ball on the courtyard. With a cozy and quiet atmosphere, you won’t be able to stop looking into each others eyes. Over Ceainaria Bohemia Tea House’s delicious home made cake.
18 Lounge by Embassy
Dinning from a height with a view might be cliché, but it’s a cliché for a reason.
Find 18 Lounge by Embassy on the 18th floor of a skyscraper with views over Herastrau and Little Paris. It’s one of the tallest office buildings in Bucharest so you won’t find many better views from a height.
Head chef George Catana has honed his craft in Frankfurt and Rome having cooked since he was 14. You’ll find an a la carte menu which changes as often as the seasons do.
If the weather permits, you could even dine on the terrace. Think of it as a step up from dinning al fresco with a picnic.
Upstairs Rooftop Bar
Evening drinks are also better with a view too. Upstairs describe themselves as a social playground. The colouring decor and fun atmosphere lives up to this.

Sip cocktails under the stars on the terrace which offers views of Calea Victoriei. Or share a gourmet dessert.
And finally, there are plenty of luxury Bucharest apartments for rent in the city to make your couples break in Bucharest perfect.
