A maze of small streets with some very old establishments and very new and modern ones of all possible kinds and price levels , churches and mostly bars and restaurants with sitting areas that take up most of the streets makes for a nice , pleasurable stroll and occasion for taking in the atmosphere or taking a bite or just...

Old Town is wrought with different experiences. Pubs, restaurants(Cara cu Bera), theaters, and retail outlets, all within walking distance. Don't forget about the Turkish night clubs!

This was typical of other old towns I've visited in other European cities. Unashamedly chasing the tourist Lei with bars and restaurants aplenty in a confined area. Some looked classy and some were clearly aimed at the stag and hen market. Pies and fish and chips in Eastern Europe for goodness sake! The big downside was the smell. It hadn't... More

It is a frequent destination for turists and also for the city inhabitants, but, personally I did not like it. It is very noisy place, a balkanic combination between trendy places and a lot of kitschy ones. The people working there are too agressive inviting you in, the music is far to loud, the smells of the daily dishes are... More

The Old Town was interesting - very busy. The restaurants were good, and the area was safe and clean. Nothing particularly exciting to see or do. The night lighting was definitely worth walking down to see though

Our tour guide brought us through Old Town. It is a great walking part of town with many eateries and shops along the way. Even with it raining the day we were here, there were still a fair amount of activity on the streets.

Interesting walk about in this remaining section of Bucharest. Former communist dictator tore down much of older part of downtown except for this area.

A very interesting mixture of architecture both old, new and very old. Area is loaded with restaurants, bars and clubs but some interesting historical places as well. It was a very pleasant day exploring the various "lanes". Nice place for a lunch or "beer" stop. I think we are too old for the night time partying that goes on here... More
