Bucharest, the capital of Romania, has been chosen as the venue for the 38th International Congress of the EAPCCT from 22 to 25 May 2018. Having a population of more than 3 million people, spread over an area of more than 200 square kilometers, the city of Bucharest is the third most populated capital in the region (after Athens and Istanbul) and the sixth largest city in the European Union.

Bucharest is connected with numerous capitals all over the world through Henri Coandă International Airport. Known for its wide, tree-lined boulevards, glorious Belle Époque buildings and a reputation for the high life Bucharest is a bustling metropolis, full of history and symbolism and well worth exploring.

The 38th EAPCCT Congress will be held at the Sheraton Bucharest Hotel, located in the city centre, within walking distance of the Old City, the Romanian Athenaeum, Arc de Triomphe, the award-winning Romanian Peasant Museum, “Grigore Antipa” Museum and Victoria Palace.
