Bucharest is the capital of Romania, a state located in southeastern Europe. The city is located in the middle of the Lower Danube lowland. The non-navigable river Dymbovitsa, chained in a granite embankment, flows through Bucharest. There are several lakes in the northern part of the capital, the largest of which is called Florayasca. In Bucharest, there is also an artificial reservoir Cismigiu, located in the park of the same name. Previously, this place was a swampy lowland, which has turned into a luxurious garden and a favorite resting place for the townspeople.

The city covers almost 240 square kilometers and is one of the most numerous cities in the country. At the beginning of 2017, more than 2 million people lived in the Romanian capital. Basically, the ethnic composition of the inhabitants of Bucharest is represented by Romanians, and only 3% are from other nationalities. A small group of Germans, Hungarians, Jews, Gypsies and representatives of other nations live here.
According to its composition, the city is divided into 6 sectors, which in turn are subdivided into districts. All sectors have their own administration, called the mayor's office. The Bucharest administration includes the heads of all sectors and the chief mayor of Bucharest. There is also a prefect appointed by the Romanian government. Its task is to monitor how the country's development plans are being implemented in the city.
