Bucharest is the Capital of Romania, a city with a long history, full of traditions and an European cultural center open to the future. Founded in 1459 on the banks of the Dambovita River by the ruler Vlad the Impaler, Bucharest subsequently became the capital of the Princely Court. The foundation of Bucharest is linked to the name Bucur. According to different legends he was either a royal offspring, an outlaw, a fisherman or a shepherd. However one thing is sure: the name Bucur has a Thracian-Geto-Dacian origin. The name Bucharest (Bucuresti) also reminds us of the word ‘bucurie’ (joy).
In the second half of the 19th century and at the beginning of the 20th century important buildings for the country were erected: the National Bank, the Academy of Romania, the Justice Palace, the North Railway Station, the Triumphal Arch on Kiseleff Avenue amongst other beautiful architectural gems. The city became an European cultural center, thus being given the name of ‘the Little Paris’.
Romania has joined the European Union in 2007 and has enjoyed recent years of GDP growth. The economy is still in the process of transformation and an educated workforce in Romania is becoming a popular location for businesses expanding in Central Europe.
With a total rentable area of 36,000 sqm, 8 levels and 2 separate buildings, Floreasca Business Park is located in northern Bucharest, close to Barbu Vacarescu Street and the nearby Aurel Vlaicu subway station.
