IMU2012 Venue - Bucharest, Romania
The International Measurement University (IMU) will be held between 9 and 14th of July 2012 in Bucharest, capital city of Romania, at the "Politehnica" University of Bucharest. The accommodation will be provided in the Grozavesti student campus, a 10-minute walk from the university.
Grozavesti campus area Old City Center
The banks of Dambovita River was the place were the Romanian legends say that the city of Bucharest was founded by a shepherd named Bucur, whose name literarily means "joy”.
While the city has grown into a metropolis, today it is a mixture of spectacular architectural styles, old and new, Western and Eastern influences, but without losing its joy and zest for life.
Centre of Bucharest
Bucharest is a cultural city and has an intense student life which is enjoyed by more than 200,000 students. Also, Bucharest is located only 100 km south from renowned resort areas in the Carpatian Mountains – like Sinaia, where the Peles Castel is an example of late XIX century architecture.
Parliament House Peles Palace in Sinaia
A trade mark of the city is the Parliament Palace, the second largest administrative building in the world after the Pentagon.
How to get to Bucharest:
Bucharest has two airports, both of which lie north of the city centre. Henri Coanda Otopeni International Airport is located 18 km north of the city downtown. There is a bus connection to the city center (2 Euros/ticket). The smaller Aurel Vlaicu International Airport is only 4 km from the city center; it is used primarily by business, charter and low-cost airlines. Also, Bucharest is linked through direct daily trains to all neighboring countries’ capitals (Belgrade, Budapest, Chişinău, Kiev, Sofia), as well as to Vienna, München, Venice, Thessaloniki, Istanbul and others.
