Old Town is a wonderful place to stroll around in the afternoon and early evening. There are lots of restaurants, bars, street performers and shops! Best part is you can walk around, watch the street performers for FREE! It gets a little bawdier at night. There are several adult (xxx) clubs there!

It's a lovely area to feast your eyes on. Especially the remains on ancient buildings such as the Curtea Veche are worth a visit. There are also plenty of shops, bars and restaurants to choose from. And a visit to the Church of the Annunciation or St. Antony's Church is simply a must!!

The old town or old centre is a bit of the original city that survived being flattened by Ceausescu for the Parliament Palace. An interesting collection 19th Century buildings facing narrow cobbled streets.Well worth a visit. Also has some interesting old pubs.

Only visited during the day, the place is quite picturesque. There is loads of places to eat, and lots of clubs, bars and erm "Massage parlours" which I imagine would come to life after dark offering dancing, drinking and erm, a massage :) Worth a look definitely.

A pleasant walkabout shows a mix of many restored and some decrepit buildings. Apparently, many of the latter are those recovered by pre-Soviet owners who cannot afford to update them yet. The restored buildings have a hint of Paris many years ago. There are many people about and you need to wander the back streets to see the real living... More

I went alone to Bucharest for a weekend break. I stayed in the old town area... which looked pretty good at first glance. I've been all over the world and never really had any trouble and am always usually quite careful. On the first night - I was drinking and talking to some locals ... who were at first pretending...

Very nice protected place. You can feel the ancient times while you walk around the old town. There is silence and very nice smell in the city. Must visit...

I visited Bucharest for a few days last October, the people were friendly, some great bars and restaurants and the city felt like a safe place to be. I would definitely recommend Bucharest for a city break with a difference
