Let me take you to Bucharest today. A few years ago I was looking for a new place to travel to and I picked the capital of Romania. It's definitely not a major tourist destination and finding a city guide was not easy because not many have been published.
Bucharest is full of contrasts, with a lingering past and a transition towards a new future. The few people I interacted with were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. It's a shame that I didn't have more time to explore Romania but I will certainly return one day.
