See the official Inspection Report: http://ifbb.com//wp-content/uploads/PDF/2019/Inspection-Report-IFBB-TIGER-CLASSIC-DIAMOND-CUP-ROMANIA-(2019).pdf

We are proud to present the XIIIth edition of the Tiger ClassicIFBB Diamond Cup Romania event!

ALL the IFBB-affiliated National Federations from Europe are very welcome to Bucharest!

Romania’s Climate

The climate in Romania’s capital is specific, temperate-continental. There are specific seasons, winter, spring, summer and autumn. Winters are relatively mild in Bucharest with little snow and relatively high temperatures, while in recent years, summers are very hot, very hot (high temperature up to 45 degrees in the shade) and little precipitation. This causes temperature differences winter – summer will be up to 60 degrees.

The landscape

For those that visited Romania, they can say that nature was very generous with this land, giving not only varied landscape but also well distributed, with towering mountains, plains, Black Sea and beyond.

The landscape is arranged in three major levels which are very well-differentiated: the highest representatives are the Carpathian Mountains, the middle are SubCarpathians and hills and plateaus, and the lowest one of the plains are the rivers and Danube Delta and Black Sea beaches.


Bucharest, the capital of Romania, is a beautiful city and welcome you to enjoy it to the fullest.

The settlement was documented on 20 September 1459 in an act of Vlad Țepes, ruler of Romanian, which strengthens an estate of nobles.

In 1862, after Wallachia and Moldavia were united to form the Principality of Romania, Bucharest became the new nation’s capital city. In 1881, it became the political centre of the newly proclaimed Kingdom of Romania under King Carol I. During this period, gas lighting, horse-drawn trams, and limited electrification were introduced. The extravagant architecture and cosmopolitan high culture of this period won Bucharest the nickname of “Little Paris” (Micul Paris) of the east, with Calea Victoriei as its Champs-Élysées.

After decades of neglect, major infrastructure renovation works have breathed new life into Bucharest’s Old Town. Many of its superb period buildings have been refurbished or restored, while others, whose beauty contrasts sharply with their state of degradation, are still waiting for their time. Nevertheless, the historic architecture, the old churches, the outdoor terraces and cafés and the romantic feel make the Old Town a most enticing area of the city.
