在附近的列奥尼达斯来杯热巧克力之后，您就会了解布加勒斯特之所以被称为“小巴黎”的原因了。从大学广场沿维多利亚大道漫步至河边，了解军事俱乐部和储蓄银行等宏伟的城市地标建筑。在国家历史博物馆探寻罗马尼亚的皇冠宝石后，不妨再去探索老城区的诸多精品店。渡河参观宏伟的国会大厦之前，您可以在 Van Gogh Café 享一杯咖啡。
Universitate 地铁站位于老城区和酒店之间，方便您前往 Aviatorilor 探索海勒斯特勒乌公园。沿湖边信步，或乘船观景，或在湖边的咖啡馆吃点休闲茶点，清醒头脑。未参观开放式村庄博物馆的传统罗马尼亚房屋，就不算真正游览过公园。公园外的凯旋门则是布加勒斯特“小巴黎”的另一道亮丽风景。
距离酒店仅数步之遥，就是气势恢弘的柱廊罗马尼亚雅典娜神庙，找个迷人的夜晚，去那里听场古典音乐会，来一次感官飨宴。您也可以让旅程充满“烟火气”，去 Locanta Jaristea 餐厅感受一下“美好时代”的氛围，伴着 Taraf 音乐和传统舞蹈，品尝土耳其肉拌饭、俄罗斯鱼子酱等等各地美食。然后穿过老城慢慢走回酒店，小酌一杯，安稳入眠。
Between the world wars, Bucharest was known as 'Little Paris'. The city was built by French architects coming from the school of Baron Haussmann, the father of modern Paris.
The first 5-star hotel in town
The InterContinental Bucharest is the first 5-star hotel to be built in Bucharest. Since its 1971 opening, the InterContinental has been the highest hotel in town and, until 2004, the highest building in Bucharest. The 22 floors offer a luxurious meeting area, 257 rooms and suites, restaurants and a spectacular Health Club, on the top floor. A landmark of Bucharest for almost 4 decades, this building was designed so that every room should have its own balcony and a spectacular view to go with it.
Bucharest City Name origins
The name of Bucharest (Bucuresti) has an uncertain origin: tradition connects the founding of Bucharest with the name of Bucur who was either a prince, an outlaw, a fisherman, a shepherd, or a hunter, according to different legends. In Romanian, the word stem bucur means 'glad', 'joy' and in Albanian, a language which may have historical connections with the Thracian languages, 'bukur' signifies 'beautiful' and 'esht' signifies 'is', literally translated as 'it is beautiful'.
The inventor of the airplane turbo jet engine
Henri Coanda, a Romanian engineer, was the inventor of the airplane turbo jet engine. Also, don't forget Brancusi, one of the world's greatest sculptors and Nadia Comaneci, the first gymnast to ever receive a perfect 10 for her performance at the Olympics in Montreal, in 1976.
