One of the highlights - during this month, the city/country is celebrating their annual Old Bucharest Festival. This festival is celebrated to honor the traditions of Bucharest. Local people roam the streets of Old Bucharest in traditional Romanian costumes. Parades are held to showcase the vivid and vibrant culture of Bucharest. Markets selling traditional products and goods are set up on the streets. Several outdoor concerts are held. Locals and foreigners can take rides in horse carriages throughout the old town.

Celebration of the city as it was 150 years ago.
