Once called the "Paris of the East", large parts of Bucharest were destroyed by a 1977 earthquake and years of neglect. However, the city still has plenty of examples of its former glory. The central Cismigiu Gardens are a stunning example of the city's one time splendour. Situated elegantly around a beautiful lake, the garden leads on through luscious greenery towards a dominating replica of Paris' Arc de Triomphe. As with any trip, trying the local cuisine is essential. Although not well known outside of Romania, the food is unique, fresh, and a must for anyone visiting Bucharest. Sarmale, considered to be the national dish, is a cabbage roll filled with minced pork, beef and spices, although variants can be found scattered around the city. Snack on covrigi, a piping hot, salted pretzel, before heading to a traditional beer house within the centre. In the evening, squeeze through the tiny lanes of Strada Smârdan and Strada Covaci to experience Bucharest's night life. Centrally located in the 'Old Town', this area is anything but old after its recent makeover, and the buzzing atmosphere adds to the excitement of an evening out.
