The University of Bucharest organizes the 54th edition of the Summer Courses in Romanian language, culture and civilization, from July 21 through August 3, 2014. Founded by the renowned linguist Alexandru Rosetti in the ‘60s, in Sinaia, and coordinated for several years by professor Boris Cazacu, the University of Bucharest Summer School is the oldest academic initiative in Romania meant to promote Romanian language and culture abroad. During the last 50 years of experience, the University of Bucharest Summer Courses have gained recognition and prestige due to the participation of many reputed Romanian and foreign professors and academicians, as well as of distinguished scholars and artists.
After the successful experience in 2010-2013, the present edition of the Summer Courses will be held again in Bucharest, the capital of Romania. For the 4thth consecutive year, the Faculty of Letters will be the host of the 54th edition, associated with the ceremonies of the 150 years since the University of Bucharest has been settled as a place reuniting the traditions in education, culture and research for Romanian higher education.
Attested since 1469, Bucharest flourished architecturally and culturally in the interwar period, when the city was known as ‘Little Paris’. Nowadays, the population of Bucharest counts more than 2 million people, the city being ranked the 6th in the European Union.
Choose Bucharest and you won’t regret it! You will discover a charming city, with classical buildings and historical monuments, but also a modern and intense city life. You will find here many concert halls, theatres and cinemas, cultural institutions, hundreds of restaurants and cafés, modern shops, parks and lakes.
