Old town has some nice little restaurants and some historical buildings and that is about it. You can tell they are working on cleaning the area up and trying to get stores open. We stopped there for lunch and were not disappointed. I would like to go back in a few years and see the improvements.

Good collection of venues for food and drinks. Quite vibrant and lots of nice spots to sit and observe the passing people.

I've been in many cities who were much more interesting than this one. However, if you are hungry the old town is a place to be. Restaurants are all overvthe place and even in pubs and bars you can always get some food. So, not much to see, but pubs and bars are open very late on weekends, lots of... More

Trendy, expensive restaurant by local standards. It' s name, literally means Tears and Saints. What it does to you, it brings tears to your eyes when you get to look at the food, in your plate, and you curse of all saints, when you get the bill. The house wine is great.

Beautiful small town with a contrast of rich and poor. Cheap prices for food and drink. All within walking distance to our hotel which was awesome.

It is the meeting point for everyone, whether tourist or local people. I knew it before it was renewed and it was mostly a pitiful sight because of the state of the buildings. Now most of them are renovated and the shops are more attractive. Personally, I like the old bioldings that have kept their original shops, they are so... More

A shame more of it has not survived Ceaucescu's bulldozers but there is clearly investment going in and it makes for an interesting tour and a number of nice places to eat and drink. I would go by day and then by night as it makes quite a difference, at weekends there are lots of people thronging the streets and... More
