“The main place to walk around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

since Bucharest is built with wide boulevards and big monuments, you need to walk a lot, if you like to see its highlights be feet. Lipscani area is the old center of the city, and it is mostly renovated.
Here is where the city lives with restaurants, caffes, pubs shops etc, always crowded and mostly during the weekend.
so join the atmosphere and enjoy it.

“Centralized food court”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Lipscani is the place to go for a drink and a meal with friends for here you can choose the cuisine you relish and sit out on a hot day under a canopy and chat for hours together watching the fun on the streets.

Or you can stroll around along with the other tourists and have a quick exchange of friendly words with the hotel owners who keep inviting in for taste of their food.

“Great If You Like To Drink”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Old City Bucharest is chock full of bars, so if you want to have a few drinks, you're all set. The food seemed a little questionable, though there were a few kebap places that were quick, cheap and delicious.

“Interesting architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

We found much variety in shops, cafes, restaurants, churches, etc. There was also a type of music festival going on and there were bands playing all over the city. It was a lovely atmosphere.
There is a mixture of architectural styles, little alleyways, wide open areas with fountains and long shopping streets. There were at least 2 weddings happening and the brides were walking round the city with small parties of guests being photographed.

“Great for a drink”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

This street was a bit of a let down, It is now almost totally given over to cafes and bars. It gets very crowded during the day and early evening. It's best to go onto some of the streets off Lipscani to look for attractions and/or shops
