Targu Neamt is a good base for trips to several orthodox monasteries may be not as famous as Bucovina's painted monasteries but equally beautiful. Neamt Monastery, founded by Stefan cel Mare and Agapia Monastery are not to be missed. The Neamþ Fortress was built in the 14th century by Voivode Petru I (possibly on the ruins of a smaller Teutonic castle), and is located on the north bank of the Neamt river. Right across Ozana river lays the village of Humulesti the birth place of one of Romania most famous and loved writers, Ion Creanga. Right before Neamt Monastery you can visit the small animal reservation "Zimbrarie" where you can see aherd of wisent the European bisons who once used to roam these mountains.
Once known as the "Little Paris", Bucharest, Romania's capital, is known for its wide, tree-lined boulevards, and glorious Belle Époque buildings. There is even an Arc de Triomphe on a boulevard longer than the Champs Elysees, with a range of trees that flower beautifully in the spring. You will be intrigued by the city's eclectic mixture of architecture, from old monasteries to Orthodox Churches, Second Empire mansions, the stolid Stalinist architecture of the communist years and the colossal Parliament House, the second largest building in the world after the Pentagon.
