Flights to Bucharest, Romania
Bucharest is served by 2 international airports, Henri Coandă International Airport (also known as Otopeni Airport) and Aurel Vlaicu International Airport (also known as Băneasa Airport.)

Best Time to Visit Bucharest
From April to October, Bucharest enjoys lovely, pleasant weather that ranges from 11-19℃. This is the perfect time for outdoor activities like sightseeing, hiking in the nearby mountains and bird watching in the Danube Delta. However, the month of May is known for its propensity for heavy rainfall, so do pack wet-weather wear as well as an umbrella if you plan on visiting during this period.
Winter sports enthusiasts will love the city in the winter months of January to March, as snow is common and amazing ski resorts can be found just a couple of hours away in the gorgeous Prahova Valley region.
Things to do in Bucharest
No visit to Bucharest is complete without a trip to the spectacular Palace of Parliament, one of the city’s most iconic (and notorious) tourist attractions. Though called a ‘palace’, this mammoth building was never home to royals - rather, it has always been the grand nest of Romanian politicians and dictators. Today the Palace of Parliament is one of the largest buildings in the world, covering over 330,000 square metres in area.
