Bucharest is situated in the South – East of Romania, in the plain region called Muntenia. It is the 6th largest city in the European Union by population within city limits, after London, Berlin, Madrid, Rome and Paris. The city comes alive especially in the warm seasons, when one can take advantage of the many green parks and gardens, open-air cultural and entertainment venues like the Village Museum (one of the biggest open-air museums of the country), Herastrau Park and The Cismigiu Gardens. Bucharest’s public transport system is the largest in Romania and one of the largest in Europe. It is made up of the Bucharest Metro, as well as a surface transport system. Although misconceptions are frequent, Bucharest is safe for traveling. In comparison with many other major cities in Europe, violent crime and serious risks are very low.
