The old city is filled with cafes and restaurants. It getts very crowded especially in the evenings (mainly in the summer). This is a must place to visit in the city.

The old town has always been brilliant for the night life. If you go to Bucharest you must go to the old town for a fun night. There is always good fun, friendly people and cheap alcohol (if you come from the UK). Nevertheless, during the day there are more and more homeless people that make the area quite unsafe.... More

Old town is very cosmopolitan with a huge variety of bars and restaurants to choose from. Nice to see young people behaving themselves and no sign of drunkeness.

If you want to be around endless open-air and enclosed restaurants, a wide variety of drinks, countless people, and a very social atmosphere with no cars and many cobblestone "streets", here's the place. Do Not Miss It!

The old town is one of the best places to visit in Bucharest. I was lucky this time of visit, and walked around together with a native friend. You will enjoy the walk, usually full of people, with nice places to eat and have a drink. Try to find the traditional restaurants.
