Old town is probably the best place to walk around in Bucharest. There are many things to to in old town. Other places of Bucharest is not so good. If you are looking for an original Turkish restaurant go to Bristor kebap. Owner is very friendly. They also have halal meat.

If you want to enjoy some good nightlife in Bucharest, the Old Town is the place to be. You have a variety of cafes/pubs that offer similar prices for drinks. A night the Old Town transforms and there are a lot of people mixing and making the area very lively and pleasant to be in.

No doubt the best part of Bucharest with old world architecture and a myriad of bars and restaurants to explore.

really bust part of town, great for buzzing and people watching-but really busy and shuffling much of the time, loads of bars and restaurants, too much choice making it really difficult to decide what to eat and where. Everyone smokes and this place even outdoors is like an airport smoking room- went to check it out but didn't return!

In many ways an island in the middle of Bucharesti. The city as at must have been. Still full of the street life, bars, restaurants and shops.

I was here on business but took some time out to explore - my colleague was my guide. What a beautiful city - the architecture and history is wonderful. As day turns to night the vibe of the old town changes and the bars and restaurants come into their own. We went to some amazing cellar bars - they were... More

Wow what can you say about this area. It was like any European Beach hot spot you could name, bars, clubs, food from all parts of the world and a brilliant atmosphere especially at the weekend, although every night was busy... Even a spot of culture for those non drinkers amongst the visitors to the Old Town, a must see... More

Lots of clubs and pubs, some are really good and some are dodgy, go in and take a look if you don't like it then go to the next place. Old Town is where everything happens and all the people come to party or chill. All the shops open from 9am to 5am
