Bucharest is becoming a world-class speciality coffee city25 Feb 2019

Bucharest, the capital of Romania, is known among tourists for its grandiose historical buildings, such as the Palace of the Parliament. But at the same time, it is quickly establishing itself as a hub for speciality coffee in Europe. Indeed, London is the leading city in Europe, with more than 250 cafés and roasteries, but take a closer look and see that Bucharest actually has one speciality café per 52,000 inhabitants, which is more than Berlin (1 café per 67,000 inhabitants) or Copenhagen (1 café...

36 Hours in Bucharest17 Nov 2018

Rebounding from decades of repression, Romania’s capital is brimming with Italian-style cafes, museums, parks and restaurants that celebrate the country’s rich cuisine. Bucharest is like cilantro, a Romanian resident once told me: You either love it or hate it.

Don’t Be a Tourist in Romania17 Oct 2018

This summer, my curiosity took me to Romania, a former communist Balkan country with a notoriously bad rep as a backwards land of gypsies with zero infrastructure for any semblance of tourism. Why do you want to go to Romania?! I was consistently asked in the run-up to our trip. My unspoken answer: to prove you wrong. So did I succeed in my mission? Did Romania live up to my high hopes? Village Hopping with Prince Charles One of the most...
