Bucharest used to be called "the Paris of the east' back in the 1930'-1940"s when my grandparents had a lingerie store on this St. I enjoy walking actually during the day and not at night ...this is where all the high society used to wonder...great restaurants and just a nice place to stroll......buy great fashionable clothes...

The old city center is full of clubs, bars, pubs and strip clubs. There are many places where you can drink a bear, eat everything you like and feel good.

Great choice of restaurants and bars. After the clean-up 5 years ago it looks very good. It kept the old architecture that now looks good and it's full of life. That's one place not to miss if in Bucharest.

It is what it is, the large part of the old town which is the home to a number of monuments and an uncountable number of restaurants.

Go all along this street you will find many historical buildings, some very well kept, some not much, but still nice and safety to have a good walk.
