This is a city where the East has met the West. Bucharest captures the finest of both worlds, and is a place where grand European history enlighten new ideas.
Finding a 300 year old church, a steel-and-glass office building and Communist-era apartment blocks next to one another is a common sight.
The city has many old communist buildings painted with graffiti, but that is the appeal of Bucharest.

Bucharest is generally safe for women digital nomads, but there are some areas in some parts of the city where it isn't safe to walk around at night, like Pantelimon, Ferentari, Giulesti, and the Gara de Nord area.
