Walking down this street (and the streets around) is like being in an exhibition of last centuries Romanian architecture. Crowded day and nigth with Romanians and tourists enjoying food and-or drinks, or strolling around just for pleasure. Easily accesed by metro, it's a safe area day or night.

I was astonished to see lively crowds late in the evening. The restaurants are abundant, the people are joyful, the music is loud. It's a pity that many old buildings there were demolished to make room for unappealing blocks that bring back the memories of past regime.

There are a lot of restaurants and clubs. Very nice to visit after midnight. But also nice during the day. Just to have lunch or diner somewhere or a drink. There is also a lot of history but the best way to discover is to do a citytour (walking).

If you come to Bucharest and want to have fun, this is THE place to be. Clubs, pubs, restaurants, terraces, different types of music, all in one place. Mostly a pedestrian area, nice architecture and a large variety of styles coming together.
