OUR SHORT STORY
The story of Bucharest Tourist Card began with a Facebook page called Travelers of Bucharest
We began in January 2015 by searching the streets of Bucharest for travelers. The reason? We wanted to show that our capital is considered by foreigners a surprising city break destination and to promote the city world wide through their stories on a Facebook page called Travelers of Bucharest (now named Bucharest App & Card). For almost two years, we met more than 2000 travelers from 80 countries and we published 950 stories. Here you can read the top 100 of them.
The next step to Bucharest Tourist Card was Bucharest City Guide
Based on the feedback we got from the tourists, in July 2015 we created Bucharest City Guide, a travel guide downloaded for free by 20.000 people and also offered 5000 free printed copies thanks to out partners. The guide was an immediate success and it got us the ambition to move on the next level.
The present means Bucharest City App & Bucharest Tourist Card
So, in January 2016 we launched Bucharest City App, another free resource (available on App Store & Google Play) for those visiting our cool capital. We have constantly improved it and today it stands at 70.000 unique downloads and 7000 active montly users. In the app you will find a lot of secret attractions, local tips, important events and handpicked locations (restaurants, cafes, pubs, clubs, shops).
In the summer of 2018 we decided to go even further by creating Bucharest Tourist Card inspired by the passes from many other European destinations (London, Paris, Rome, Barcelona, Berlin). The city and especially the tourists needed it and wanted it for so long so we responded!
If you are a visitor, our card will help you improve your experience and save money. And don’t forget about our free app, because Bucharest Tourist Card & Bucharest City App were designed to work together. With the app on your phone and the card in your pocket you will definitely #EnjoyBucharest!
