This book is an excellent guide to Romania. I used it all over the country and constantly found it reliable, informative and easy to use. The writers have gone out of their way to find both the usual and the unusual, and the guide is really comprehensive. Excellent.

About to spend 3 days on a city break to Bucharest, I searched for a guide to the city and found two - both dealt with Romania generally, rather than Bucharest in particular. I made a choice based on reviews. The Lonely Planet guide was detailed and no doubt worthwhile for a trip throughout Romania and I cannot criticise that. However, as guide to Bucharest it was limited. There were no colour or large scale maps and this made walks and tours around the city a little more difficult than they needed to be.
As a guide to Romania generally I am sure that the book is fine - but for a trip to just Bucharest, download or try to obtain the little pamphlet "Bucharest in your Pocket" - it includes maps, is uptodate and is free!
