It's very strange to see one building renovating and very nice with a new restaurant or another company and next to it a building that is collapsing... This is a part of daily life in Bucharest. Sometimes my feeling was that most of the glamour was more glitter and show then anything else.

Nice place, with old churches and buildings to see and to visit, cafe, restaurants, pubs to spend a pleasant afternoon or evening, few shops, but Unirea Shoping centre is nearby.

The atmosphere is great fun and not only for young people. although they seem to get the best of it. Its restaurants and bars are always full, but let's not forget it's the Old City, so a visit to the Dracula's manor is necessary, particularly if you have imagination!

A start. Doesn't strike like they have an actual plan for it. I was somewhat amased we could't find a place to stay in without reservation. It was an ordinary Friday in Decembre. Some places are hot some are holes. One next to the other. Most of them not too spacios or confortable. Shops are nothing special.

it makes you wish the general plan to refurbish the whole area was actually carried out ! Lots of atmosphere and potential. Lots of places to have a drink and a few nice restaurants. Some potentially interesting historic sites but not easy to visit and find info on.
