Bars, restaurants, shops, and many old and nice looking buildings. You can even find a statue of Vlad Tepes here. One of... More

If you visit Bucharest, Old Town is the best place to chill out. The area is full packed with restaurants, bars, shops and near to a mall as well. If you like urban stuff I found one shop in this area. They sell sneakers but too sad they don't have Jordans but they got some airmax's

Attractions are all of walking distance! Joining a walking tour is recommended! Lots of bakeries and restaurants in that area as well.

The Old Historic Town (Centrul Vechi) have everything to offer for everybody, from all kind of restaurants, bars and pubs to beautiful architectural buildings. This is a place to discover the city by day and by night.

This is one of the best "Old Towns" in Europe. The irony is the Old Town was a boarded up Slum until 5 years ago when one by one bars started opening up and the restaurants - basically everything "old" is actually brand new. Now there are dozens of bars and outdoor patios. The Bars at night go to 6... More

We spent a day in Bucharest while waiting for flights. We walked Old Town toward the evening right as the sun was setting. This is a really neat experience. Lots of restaurants and activities going on. Of everything we saw in Bucharest, this was my favorite part. I highly recommend anyone staying in Bucharest to check it out.
