We enjoyed strolling and had dinner here several times. As opposed to pedestrian streets in other European cities, Lipscani is not at all touristy. Its obviously an area where the local people like to go.

Main walking street in heart of Old Town, in Bucharest. Restaurants all around. National Bank of Romania is located here. Ancient 'trade place' underground along the street. Small shops. Romantic area. One theatre is locared here. Old buildings of 19th Century. Great walking area.

It was a very crowded area long time ago. Then it was a time when nothing happened... And now, the Lipscani street is again full of life, good for shopping, nice restaurants, cafes and exhibitions! Old facades renewed, new buildings fitting well with the area, really a nice place to go, to visit and spend some time during your visit... More

Although one only admires images of the European world of the years between the big wars, they can rarely live the visual and closeness experience of that time. Except on streets like Lipscani in Bucharest. One can almost hear the busy crowds of shoppers bargaining or just passing by elegant shops and restaurants of the 30's. Many buildings kept on... More

The place to come for a wide range of bars and restaurants. However, it's a real mix of smart places and shabby buildings, as well as rather tacky in places. Suspect it gets rather lively late at night given the number of stag groups we saw, but fine in the day and early evening.
