Bulgaria & Romania

My guided tour would be staying a full day in Bucharest, which will include a city tour in the morning. The afternoon is free. If I stay for one more day in Bucharest due to flight issue, can anybody suggest what are the top spots to go? I do not need to go for tours outside Bucharest, as my tour would cover all castles tour outside Bucharest.

In Bulgaria, how much time do I need to see the Rila Monastery (meant to tour inside) ? If we are going to hike the lakes, will that be too rush in a day.

Appreciate any advice regarding these two countries as we booked a trip in September 2020.

Thanks
Amy

Bucharest is a far cry from a major tourist sight. In fact, its a far cry from a mediocre tourist sight. Top sight: Outdoor Museum, collection of old Romanian houses. Tour the capital building, walk the grand boulevard extending along the fountains in front of the capital building. Walk the main drag are in the central city. Bus/train to the two towns (one Bulgaria, one Romania where the river cruises dock.
