Bucharest is a city that combines the old with the new. Visitors might come across a centuries-old building, a modern high rise, and a Communist-style building all in the same block. This modernizing European capital boasts the largest Parliament building in the world with 3,100 rooms and 12 stories high. Tours of this impressive building, constructed in 1984, are given frequently throughout the day. Also not to be missed is the old town center with its narrow cobblestone streets and old buildings, including medieval churches. Museums include the Village Museum, and the Museum of the Peasant, both of which are dedicated to the traditional lifestyle of Romanians.
