Like any old town in Europe

For a person that is well travelled in Europe, this is nothing special. But it is still worth the wander and ticks all the boxes for what you would expect for an old town.

Do you like bars, struggling and hipsters? Then this is the place for you! Okay, I'm being a little harsh, but only a little. Worth walking through, but go get your lunch elsewhere, unless you have a beard and enjoy being overcharged.

Old Town is full of great places to grab a drink or something to eat. Old town has the best nightlife in Bucharest also. During the day you can walk on the cobble stone roads and admire the old buildings. You can sit outside when the weather is nice and watch the people passing by. During the night you can... More

It's been slowly renovated over the years and a great place to visit when in Bucharest. Full of character.

Every now and then, one has time to spare, and the daily routine pushes you out the door to either relax or have fun... For the latter, The Old Town is THE place... Bars, restaurants, clubs everywhere... Prices vary from affordable to... let's say not so affordable.

Lots of places to eat and drink in the area, some sights around the edge. Bit seedy in some areas. Very crowed with people at night and if you're eating outside your sight is normally some drunk person trying to stand or make conversation with you. Still worth a look if in the area.

After being based in Sibiu I was expecting classic Romanian architecture and large plaza's filled with people surrounded by shops and restaurants. What I found was street after street of pub and bar with nothing unique to offer. This is the most disappointing "old town" I have ever visited!

Spent an evening in Old Town to eat dinner and have a couple drinks. The environment is a very unique mix of very old historical sites as well as new bars and restaurants. For me, a history lover, the best of both worlds! Walked around and enjoyed seeing the history and then had a classic Romanian dinner and drinks. Wonderful... More

Nice historical place, great architecture, vivid and packed with people wandering, having fun, drinking and eating in the many restaurants and terraces available. Indeed a very vivid and modern cosmopolitan area. there are some nice shops, I would recommend 'Carturaresti' .
