Bucharest at English => English (The Britannica Concise) Of Explained:

City (pop., 1994 2,080,000), capital of Romania. Excavations have revealed evidence of prehistoric settlement. It gained in importance when the rulers of Walachia moved there in the 14th cent. Vlad III built its fortress in the 15th cent. to ward off invading Turks; they eventually took it and made it their Ottoman Walachian capital in 1659. In the 19th cent. civic unrest helped force the union of Walachia and Moldavia, and Bucharest became the capital of the new Romanian state in 1862. Occupied by the Soviet army after World War II, it along with the nation came under communist control. During the 1980s uprisings in E Europe, it was the scene of political demonstrations against the government of N. Ceausescu that resulted in his overthrow and execution.
