When to Fly

Bucharest has been the capital of Romania since 1862, it is the cultural centre and largest city in of the country, containing a mixture of neo-classical, communist and modern architecture. The transitional seasons of spring (March through May) and autumn (September through November) are the most comfortable times to book a flight to Bucharest: you may need to pack an umbrella to shield yourself from rain, but the temperatures are far more comfortable for travel at an average of 15 degrees.

The city located on the Romanian Plain is subject to chilly winds that drive the temperature well below freezing in the wintertime (December through February). Summer (June through August), by contrast, is dry and hot with temperatures on average sweating it out at 26 degrees. Whether you’re looking forward to lounging in the summer sun in or dance the night away at one of the many musical festivals, there’s no wrong time to book a flight. 

Peak Season:

Summertime is full with tourists wishing to take in the sights of the city when the sun is out in full force. Bear in mind that summer can experience occasional heavy storms. This is Bucharest’s busiest festival season. If you’re planning on visiting during the summer, be sure to book your flights well in advance. 

Off-Peak Season

Cheap flights to Bucharest are easier to come by in autumn and spring, when the weather’s a bit damp. During the spring months of March to May, you can be a part of the multitude of arts festivals hosted by the city, including the Bucharest International Film Festival in April and the EuropaFest in May.

Bucharest International Film Festival showcases feature-length movies, short films, animations and documentaries from directors across the globe during this week-long event which is popularly attended by locals, out-of-town and international visitors. Films air at a number of different theatre venues.

EuropaFest is the biggest musical event in the country held annually and featuring a variety of performances by big names from musical genres such as jazz, blues and pop. Held at the Royal Palace, the festival runs for one week during which time over 300 musicians perform live. The highlight of the event is the Gala Evening on the last night of the festival.

Why visit

You would never know that Bucharest, Romania’s thriving capital city, was the site of a devastating revolution: It was here that protesters tore the streets apart while ousting the Communist regime from the city merely two decades ago. Today, Bucharest is a vibrant city that remembers its past while embracing the new. 

The festivals that take place in the city each year showcase the plethora of artistic and musical talent cultivating in Bucharest, while the universities inject a youthful energy into the nightlife scene. All of this refreshing activity takes place alongside the solemn structures built throughout the reign of Nicolae Ceau?escu, the Communist president of Romania whose urbanization plans displaced thousands of people and forced them to move into these cold concrete buildings still standing today. Ceau?escu’s control of Romania ended with the 1989 Revolution, when he was publicly executed in the series of weeklong riots and violent protests that ultimately overthrew Communism in Romania. 

One of the first things travellers notice when they visit Bucharest for the first time is the city’s intense artist community: the locals’ innovative music and performance art gained momentum in the wake of the political turmoil the city was one burdened by.

Bucharest is famous for its house music, with clubs scattered throughout the neighbourhoods of the city blasting bass into the early hours of the morning. Most of Bucharest’s annual festivals revolve around music and celebrate music in all of its forms, from street percussion to classical voice. Regardless of when you book your Bucharest flight, you’re sure to be surprised by the artistic, creative adventures that await you in this city that spans the centuries.
