It is a nice place to go and see the old Bucharest. On Friday and Saturday nights, though, it is too crowded. I prefer week days.

Daytime the old town is a place were you study the beatiful architecture of the different buildings. Evenings it is the restaurant life that dominate. But the night clubs with glory signs maybe dominate the nightlife too much.

Yes, there are ruins in Old Town and yes, there are beautiful churches. The abundance of restaurants and bars make it a must go. We ate in several establishments in Old Town including a sushi place and all of it was delicious.

Old town has been a bit commercialized, but it is still some really pretty buildings and good places to sit down and have a drink. The Old town is not that big, so you will have it covered within a few hours.

it's a mixture of the very nice, the quirky and the absolute stunning. There are plenty of pubs and restaurants and the ambiance is gentle

Interesting old buildings. A real pitty that many of them are not well cleaned up and kept as they deserve. Beautiful architecture of many of them.
