Lipscani, is the name of the road but also the Old town. Here you will find antiques, modern bars and many different kinds of restaurants and shops. You just have to stroll up or down, turn right and left...and enjoy. We interesting and relaxing.

Located in the centre of Bucharest,in the Old Town , this is a nice area where you can hangout with friends. During the weekend the area is very crowded by the people who wanna have fun. Large variety of restaurants , pubs and clubs.

This is the oldest commercial street in Bucharest, it has plenty of building of historical value, souvenir and handcraft shops and lots of restaurants and bars. Towards Victoriei Avenue, you will see the monumental Bank of Romania on the left side.

I find it tries too hard to be hip and offers poor attractions. It was much "cooler" when the glass blowers were still there and the place was authentic- the restaurants are not very appealing on the whole and the entire locations seems seedy and dirty, besides numerous buildings that look hazardous.

The old town area is well worth a visit, largely pedestrianised with plenty of interesting old buildings, lots of shops, bars and restaurants and a generally good atmosphere. It's nice to get away from the heavy traffic and chaotic parking which exists throughout the rest of the city.

This area is full of clubs and pubs. If you want to explore the old town, better do it during the week because in weekend you can`t even walk because of the crowd.

One of the oldest streets in Bucharest, it is part of the zone named Centrul Vechi. Neglected for almost 20 years, it was recently re-discovered and rebuilt. It is mainly a commercial street, with small and cozy shops, cafe's, pubs. The buildings, almost decayed, were refurbished with the aim of keeping the old style, of more than a century. They...
