In the University of Bucharest, by tradition, Astronomy was developed within the Department of Mechanics dominated by outstanding mathematicians. From this reason, for a long time, Astronomy was sustained mainly in the Faculty of Mathematics. Some lectures were given in the Faculty of Physics, too. After 1990, the astrophysics became a systematic course at the Faculty of Physics, and gradually the number of topics studied increased. In a relatively short time, reasonably good results were obtained, being now involved in many international cooperations in astrophysics, giving master degree in astrophysics to the Romanian students. During this time the Faculty of Physics of Bucharest University was and still is involved in many European programs, like TEMPUS and ERASMUS/SOCRATES (with: France, Germany, Italy, Greece) and with other countries, as USA or Australia, on specific fields of astrophysics. The Faculty organized for the first time the observation of a total solar eclipse (TSE 1999), when it hosted the 24‐th ISYA Summer School. We would like to emphasize here the main aspects of those activities, and their perspectives for the next future.
