Located on the River Danube, Fetesti is the Gateway to Bucharest, and a popular port for river cruises to Romania. Brabant will dock here to allow guests to visit the atmospheric city of Bucharest.

The city is often compared with Berlin, and upon arrival at Bucharest, you can see why. Here, the heady mix of 17th and 18th century orthodox churches and graceful belle époque villas, tucked away between trendy cafes and gardens beg to be explored, and the stunning Cişmigiu Garden must surely be included on your must-see list. With shady walks, a lake, cafes and many benches, the flora here is astounding. Don’t miss the imposing Palace of Parliament, built in the 1980’s during the height of Communism and is said to be the largest Parliament building in the world, housing the National Museum of Contemporary Art, as well as the Romanian Parliament. Another important, and relatively recent, historical site to visit is Revolution Square, where Ceaușescu's regime was ended in 1989.

Stroll through the streets of Lipscani (the Old Town) with its many street cafes and restaurants, and marvel at the parts of this fine city that have been left since wars have attempted to decimate it, you won’t be disappointed.
