Interesting things about Bucharest and Romania

Situated in the part of the world which will perhaps always be known as Eastern Europe, it would be more accurate to describe Bucharest's geographical location as south-eastern Europe. Bucharest was founded in the 14th century and it is located in the part of Romania known as Wallachia, one of the three historic principalities (next to Moldavia and Transylvania) which are now the modern country.
