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. It is like many central urban developments which have sprung up from urban decay and it is clear that the restaurants have been dropped on top of crumbling buildings and do not think... More

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.

We only were here during the day. Very active and vibrant part of the city. Lots to see. Great people watching. A mix of old and new, historic sites, restaurants and pubs. Seems like the youthful pub scene is taking over at night. Just walk and check out the architecture of the buildings and the older shops!

well this is THE place to spend your evenings in Bucharest. I needed 3,4 evening just to actually see all the places without entering. I am a maniac when it comes to this, but I really enjoy checking the details... there are SO many places here it;s difficult to decide, that's why u need more evenings :)

Knowing that in the backyards there is a lot of misery and filthy places I really cannot understand how can someone enjoy a beer under a falling facade! I live in București. I love my hometown ! I would rather close this area and force the building owners to restore them ! Only AFTER that ,Lipscani would really become The... More

The place is too crowded nowadays and it is filled with people that seems to be there just because they do not want to stay at home.too many night clubs and the quality of the food is getting worst and worst
