One of the grandest-looking cultural centres you're ever likely to come across, the French Institute won't leave you feeling unsatisfied with what's on offer. For starters, to understand what's written in the books stocked in the excellent library on the top floor, you can take French language courses (all levels) and then round them off with an exam. If you have kids, leave them at the children's library on the ground floor. Romanian-language courses also available if you want an extra challenge. The centre behind the institute shows a wide range of French films, concerts and events and, although small, is excellent.

A little bit of Britain in the centre of Bucharest, teeming with life and energy. The library on the top floor is extensive and receives plenty of new publications (including videos and CDs) on a frequent basis. You'll also find slightly out-of-date newspapers and magazines to browse through as well as internet access. The basement has a well-stocked teachers' resource centre, and the council also holds very popular English language courses and exams. In the courtyard you'll find the Brit Cafe (good sandwiches and drinks) an internet cafe and resource library. All in all, a brilliant way to spend your time. Membership costs 900,000 le
