Transylvania and Dracula's Castle Full Day Tour from Bucharest

665 reviews
No visit to Romania would be complete without ticking off Transylvania, where ancient castles are set against backdrops of dramatic rolling hills. See the best of the region without having to worry about car hire or navigation on a day trip from Bucharest, which offers a great introduction to local history for first-time visitors.

This bookstore is located in the old town of Bucharest. It has quite a big front so you will recognize it immediately. The building is beautiful and the interior is incredible! It has several levels and makes an interesting and pleasant stroll and, no doubt, spectacular photos! Foreign language sections were too small so we didn’t buy anything but we definitely enjoyed looking around. There is a cafe inside on the top floor and many other items for sale except books.

This is how books should be treated. Feels like a cathedral of booklove. Great selections, quirky stuff and just a sigh of words, letters, books

The most famous bookstore in Bucharest is hosted by a renovated Art Nouveau building, dating back since 1903. The interior seems to be loved by Instagrammers. There's a huge selection of books, vinyl's, movies, music, wines, teas, gifts and souvenirs to choose from. Just like almost everything in the Old City Center, the books are overpriced, as some of them could be found online or could be purchased from other bookstores around the city for 20-30% less. Some other books and vinyl’s are difficult to be found elsewhere. However, here you can buy some really rare jazz albums. As of the wines, many of them are cheaper at the airport. Anyway, if you need to buy a decent bottle of wine for someone's birthday, Carturesti Carusel is a safe bet.
