On this week's What You Could Get In The City For $10, we'll be back to Europe… And after we got introduced to Romanian's local beauty product Farmec Gerovital H3 Antiperspirant, now it's time for Jules from to share with us how we could spend our $10 in her hometown.
Back when I was wayyy younger, I got introduced to the city because of the local football club Dinamo Bucharest that had been playing in the European Cup (back in the day, it was called UEFA Cup though!) and that was the club where Adrian Mutu used to play so anyway…
I'm not too familiar with Romanian culture in general despite the fact that my best friend in high school is half-Romanian, but thanks to Jules, I just found out that Bucharest is actually the capital city of culture in Romania!
So, how does Jules spend the $10 in Bucuresti? – that, apparently is how the locals call the city 😛
So, what are the best things to do in Bucharest?
Bucharest is the capital city of Romania and my hometown. I am in love with the city and no matter where I go, I am always glad to come back home.
Bucharest is a rather cheap city, in comparison with other larger cities in Europe, so there are plenty of things to purchase with $10.
First off, let’s start with the food (or drinks) – with $10, you can buy a meal for yourself (albeit, not a posh one).
It would consist of a main dish and certainly something to drink. Most of the restaurants in Bucharest offer “daily meals” (pre-cooked) – it is cheaper than $10 and it includes a soup, a main dish and a dessert.
You’ll be left with plenty of money to also have something to drink. In terms of coffees, even the most expensive one, does not go over $10.
If you want to have a taste of Bucharest’s cultural life, with $10 you can buy tickets to the Romanian Athenaeum, to see one of the oldest Romanian philharmonics, the George Enescu Philharmonic (they would not be front row seats, remember!) or to any other theaters.
Bucharest is the cultural capital of Romania, so it has a wide variety of shows and plays. Of course, even a cinema ticket is within the allocated amount.
A trip to the museum has never been easier in Romania – one of my favorites museums in Bucharest is the National Village Museum, which exhibits replicas (or sometimes originals!) of old, traditional houses from all over Romania.
There are so many other museums to choose from, in Bucharest, that I am convinced that you will not get bored. Most of them sell tickets which are within the $10 range.
Bucharest is a very welcoming city and a trip here is something you cannot miss!
