It;s okay, not wow.. a lot of old buildings that I think they need a little renovation and the streets are too small. If you'll go there in the summer it's too crowded.

A very nice area of Lipiscani street itself and several others streets criss crossing with many pavement cafes and restaurants. Not a pushy tourist packed area, busy yes, but a nice place for a people watching afternoon drink or a good evening meal.

A great area to just watch the world go by. Right in the heart of the old town surrounded by great architecture full of restaurants, bars and entertainers. Get a drink and sit and people watch for a relaxing time

This is a famous street that was and still is at the heart of the old town. Famous for many decades for the shops and restaurants, it has plenty of decent restaurants, bistros and beer gardens, some shopping and even a theater (Teatrul de pe Lipscani). The prices for food and drinks is higher here than elsewhere in Bucharest, but... More

You can choose one of those very nice bars or restaurants and enjoy your day. Even if it's a bit crowded, this crowd never bothers you. You can find any kind of kitchen, make shopping. a very good way to spend your Sunday in here.

The old city center is a mixture of very old buildings, many terraces, clubs, lively atmosphere, but dont miss the ruins of the old castle of Vlad Tepes, the Dracula, who founded Bucharest back in the 15th century! And some of the restaurants and pubs have secret hidden back gardens or courtyards to be discovered....

The bar district. Lots of people trying to elicit business and bars are of varying quality. It did feel a bit like it could be anywhere in the world. It's a shame a lot of the places don't have more of a local flavour.

It is the old quarter, which was rebuilt into an area of restaurants, pubs and small shops. It is nice during daytime and great in the evenings and nights.
