You can't go far wrong on a day out here if you're a photographer or artist with a passion for history and architecture. Lots of eye-catching buildings that evoke a sense of nostalgia and old world charm.

This area, also known as Old Town, is a fascinating section of Bucharest and the heart of the city's historic core. It represents both the old world of Bucharest and the transformation into a livable urban center and tourist attraction. Where else can you go to eat, drink, be entertained, visit the old historic sites of churches, museums, bank buildings,... More

Now that the #colectiv tragedy happened a lot of bars and pubs are closed because they violated safety regulations. Maybe for a foreigner it s an interesting experience, but I do not recommend it for locals

A maze of historical untidy buildings and modern pubs. Far from what a pedestrian street should be. Animated, vivid, multi-colored.

Also known as the Old Town, is one of the oldest part of Bucharest. Restructured a few years ago, the narrow streets will walk you near old buildings, some restructured, some still a ruin. You can find lots of clubs, restaurants, pubs and shops.

The Bucharest city center is a continuous construction site. It is very dirty and dusty in the warm days and muddy during the rainy days. The Lipscani street was the main commercial street of the city until the 80s. It's current role is only a hystorical one. The shops were closed and there were substituted with bars and coffee shops.... More
