A very pretty area with lots of places to eat. The old town is especially pretty but it is not very large though. Similar to other European cities, you get this causy feeling from just being there.

This is a nice place to wonder around, you can go there especially for night life. It is a colored corner and one of the few remaining of the old city.

There's a joke going around along the lines of "i want the end of the world to find me on Lipscani" and that's pretty much all you need to know.

The place is full of bars and pubs. Very small area to walk through tables. Very noisy cause of people and music. Good place for hanging around with friends to drink a beer but not for a business meeting. Anyway, the old town in Bucharest is one of the most popular place. Try to avoid evenings if you want to...

Nice to walk at evening and go for a drink, dinner or just fun (mostly live music). There are some good restaurants, prices are low and the food is good. One of the few areas that comprises most of what Bucharest has to offer at nights, both for locals and tourists.

Bucharest, to me, means architecture and contrasts. This area is one of the many to visit. The streets are narrower than what you otherwise have in the areas around, giving this area a charm and cozy feeling, kind of shabby, which is not unusual. Besides the buildings (a few really great things), plenty of restaurants and bars, among which some... More

This busy typical charming european pedestrian area is one of the best places in Romania. I love to go back over and over again to Lipscani old city center pedestrian streets, wether during the day, or at night. During the day, you can hop from store to store, visit some antique shops, book stores, galleries, discover little alleys, have some... More

It's great in the summer. Or in the winter. Or any time in between. Lots of places where you can eat and have a good time with your friends. The area is nice. One problem would be the fact that some buildings are in danger of collapsing, so don't go near buildings that look unsafe.

A gem in the middle of the city with cobbled stone pathways and wonderful array of shops and restaurants with a vibrant atmosphere. a Must do item on your list of things to do in Bucharest.
