Really lovely old city with beautiful old churches. The best thing was the al fresco dining of all types. A really busy, trendy location that is easy to get around and worth the time to get to explore. In summer there are plenty of outdoor concerts and talented buskers to keep you entertained.

A few streets of old buildings, hidden churches and lots of eating places to sit and relax. Lively in the evening but with a laid back atmosphere.

I heard that once this was called Paris of the East and I can see a bit why. All the buildings are old which makes it great for photography. It does makes you wonder how much longer a place like this can exist, cause some buildings seem to almost fall apart. The streets are full of bars and restaurants and... More

The old center of Bucharest is one of the key location of the Litlle Paris as Bucharest was once known.Nowadays there are plenty of restaurants and bars so in the evening becomes very crowdy.
