Bucharest festival to draw a crowd

The festival will be held in Bucharest’s Herastrau Park between the 22nd and 24th August and will offer visitors the eclectic sounds of local bands and musicians, as well as the chance to sample cuisine from around the world. With local bands playing jazz, blues and country, this is a great opportunity for escorted river cruise holiday guests to get a real flavour for the local Romanian culture.

Arts and Cuisine

The festival is set to have its own dedicated area to international cuisine featuring Indian, Italian and Chinese delicacies for visitors to try. The Agra Palace will be present to offer visitors the finest Indian cuisine from one of Bucharest’s most renowned chefs, Arun Kumar, alongside one of the city’s best Chinese restaurants, Hong Kong Restaurant. For those looking for something a bit sweeter, world-renowned Italian chocolate maker Venchi will also be there ready and waiting for visitors to be lured to their sweet-smelling offering.

Once full, visitors can browse the different areas of the festival and see different fashions and designers influenced by Romanian traditions and heritage, including works from Lana, Fuyor and photography workshops from Allkimik.

With so much to see and do, this is a great festival to attend for any travellers passing through the Romanian capital, but for those who aren’t quite able to make it this weekend there will be plenty of opportunity with Emerald Waterways’ European river cruises in 2015. The 10-day Enchantment of Eastern Europe river cruise is brand new for 2015 and offers guests the chance to explore the natural wonders and local cultures of Romania in the unrivalled comfort of their contemporary Star-Ships, waking up in a new exciting location each day.
