Stayed in Bucharest for 3 nights visiting the Old Town in both day and night. Food is very reasonably priced, try 'Chicken Staff' for super cheap chicken meals and ciabattas or the Kebab Stop for fast food.

All kinds of bars and restaurants, some are cheaper, some are more expensive, but all are quite affordable. Choose a terrace and simply watch the parade of people dressed for the occasion.

We wandered the old town on Sunday Morning, it was not showing its best side, rubbish and stomach content were there for all to see and smell, it was after 11 am when we came across cleaning up crews

If you like bars and restaurants and people smoking everywhere, this is great. Not enough variety or interesting shops.

Loved the old buildings, the small narrow streets, the whole ambiance is great on a nice sunny day. The city has potential no doubt. It will be a gem in Europe as they keep on renovating.
