Chilly weather? Time to go shopping in Bucharest!

Happy autumn to you! Remember that a new season is upon us, which (sadly) means it’s time to change our wardrobe and cover up the beautiful summer tan. Gone are the days when wearing sandals, tank tops and short trousers was a good idea for an outfit; the weather is getting a bit chilly, and it’s a must to have something long sleeved to wear in the cool evening. A shopping spree is definitely coming up, but did you ever consider going on a trip for shopping? If so, then shopping in Bucharest might be the perfect idea for September.

Why? Because Bucharest is a great place to visit, and there are so many places to shop here, from malls to street shops with internationally well known brands, to local designer boutiques and more; fashion fairs are frequently happening on weekends in Bucharest. Also, a trip means staying in a stylish and well prepared accommodation, where you will have all the comfort you need to feel relaxed and happy.

Sounds good, doesn’t it? Go ahead and pack lightly and get prepared to go shopping in Bucharest! This colorful season should be celebrated with an adventure in an eclectic city, where gorgeous sights and great fashion are always in style.
