Bucharest is a relatively new city as no mention of it is made until 1459,according to the history.The exact origins of the city are therefore unknown.A sheferd,Bucur founded the city, but a more likely candidate is Radu Voda(also known as Radu Negru),ruler of wallachia from c1290-1300.
It was under Vlad the impaler that the city grew to any real size,when it became the preferred site of the Wallachian court.This was based in what is today known as old town, around the curtea veche, the city was sacked for the first time in 1476 by the Moldavian ruler Stephen the Great(Stefan cel Mare),and again by the Turks in 1554.in January 1859,at the hotel Concordia on Strada smardan,Wallachia’s nascent parliament elected Alexandru loan cuza as the principality’s new ruler.Given that the Moldavian parliament had elected the same man to be their leader a few days before, the vote at the Concordia in effect created the first state of Romania,Bucharest grew and flourished during the reign of carol l (1866-1914),Romania first king.since ever the city never stop growing.
