An important part of the Old Center, Lipscani is the street where you can find almost every joint you can wish for. It starts from Calea Victoriei and ends at the Sfantul Gheorghe Church(Saint George). It's almost a mile long, but it's packed with turkish restaurants, metal bars, glam clubs, theaters, and so on. Even the National Bank has its... More

Lipscani area is a square you have to see when you are in Bucharest because of its unique shape, colours and true spirit. The area is always crowded with multicultural people. Charming

As much as I love visiting Western and Eastern European "Olde Towns", I was not that impressed with Lipscani in Bucharest. It did not seem to be as well maintained as other old towns and I didn't find too many unique shops other than traditional souvenir shops selling postcards, glassware--mugs, dishes, shot glasses-- and t-shirts. For me there were too... More

As a tourist, if starving or craving for any type of food, then this is the place. It has lots of clubs, restaurants, fast-foods and fine dining places. Would also recommend the area for the clubs and pubs. During the lunch time, most of the restaurants also serve the lunch menu at special prices. Plus: nice old architecture.
