General information

BUCHAREST

The 8-th Europediatrics Congress jointly held with The 13 National Congress of Romanian Pediatrics Society will be held in Bucharest, Romania. The history of the city has always been written by both Romanians and foreigners, who lived in it or only passed by. Called Dimbovita’s fortified town”, built on Dimbovita’s banks, Bucharest was the voivodal headquarter and then the capital city for the past 500 years. Its rich architecture and cultural life brought Bucharest the nickname of “Little Paris” at the beginning of the 20th century. Bucharest proved to be one of the most important places in the Southeast of Europe, most populated, rich and forward thinking.

What can be more interesting than a city which gathers together Orient and Occident, North and South, a city that speaks through its architecture - to all its visitors in their language? Hungarians, Greeks, Turks, Germans, Frenchmen, Russians, Americans, and so many more people from the four corners of the world.

Come and discover Bucharest by yourself!
