Old town was nothing spectacular. A bit souless and lacking in atmosphere. I would imagine in the summer it would be heaving with stag/ hen do's.

This is an area that is in the center of the city comprising one of it's oldest areas. It includes the remnants of a castle or fortification that Vlad Tepes used in the 15th century. It is also an area that is alive with restaurants, bars and clubs full of tourists and locals.

Nice place to walk and enjoy a cup of coffee and good cake. Very nice buildings to look at. A lot of galleries and small shops.

We visited the old town in late November, and we were expecting more Christmas decorations, but unfortunately, there were only a few. The cold season is not the best time of year to experience the old town, especially not the crumbling parts (and there are quite a few of those around).

Surprisingly beautiful and with a very interesting history. I would recommend taking one of the free walking tours to visit it. It is also full of restaurants and clubs/pubs.

I loved Old Town when I recently visited Romania! There is so much to see in terms of history and local culture, as well as plenty of great places to eat. You shouldn't leave Bucharest without a visit!

The Old Town is a safe, clean centre with good hotels, restaurants and bars. An excellent base to explore the rest of Bucharest.
