10 days in Bucharest in April?

Jump to last reply

Bucharest had not been on my radar at all, but I stumbled across a great fare and am wondering whether to take it. I have 10 days (12 April - 22 April).

The reason I'm hesitating is that I haven't found a good guidebook on Bucharest (suggestions anyone?), and traveller reports I've read online have been mixed.

That having been said, would be great to hear thoughts on whether 10 days in Bucharest would be just right for a city-leaning, "slow" traveler -- or far too long and irredeemably dull.

I should add:
* I much prefer city traveling to touring scenic small towns or countrysides. So this would be 10 days in Bucharest with maybe a 1-2 day trips.
* I could spend days and days and days in museums, at the theatre, concerts and opera.
* I speak no Romanian and my French is very rusty.

Any thoughts to help me decide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
