Calea Victoriei or the Victory Avenue in Bucharest is a boulevard that is riddled with the bullets of history. Following the Romanian victory in the Independence War of 1877-1878, the road was named Calea Victoriei.
It has always been the showpiece street of Bucharest and even during the latest revolution in 1989, people marched through the famous avenue. The Continental Hotel which is located in the most important part of Calea Victoriei has been renovated and restored to modernity. It offers luxury and 5 star accommodation right in the middle of the city.
Earlier, it was called the Broft Hotel and about 8 million euro was spent in order to restore it. It features Jacuzzi spa, massage and sauna rooms, beauty and wellness treatments, fitness and aerobic centres. There are 53 rooms, 6 luxury apartments which are designed in Renaissance, Baroque, Impero, Louis XV styles.
It exudes a sort of aristocracy that reminds you of the excesses of the Romanian royalty. Victoria Club English bar, Concerto “fine dining” luxury restaurant, and the Balkan Bistro restaurant make sure that the guests get to enjoy some of the best cuisines in the world. When you are tired of all the luxury, you could walk down the glitzy Calea Victoriei!
