Nice cobblestone streets. Kind of quite during the day but at night it was quite lively and busy with all the restaurants. Quite a few orthodox churches in the area that are interesting to see.

The old town of Bucharest is full of character and is much more peaceful than the nearby Avenue Victoria. It has many beautiful churches, interesting architecture and plenty of opportunities to sit and watch the world go at one of the many bars and restaurants along the way. It's a real treat for those of us from the UK to... More

This is a nice location, one of the best places to go in the evening with friends or even solo. Many restaurants, clubs, bars, shops and young people. Enjoy!

By far, my favourite part of Bucharest; it's old and full of history. Every building is unique from the other. Truly a work of art and the most peaceful part of the busy city.

During our stay just last week we've been in Old Town every day - there are countless big and small places to see - cafes, shops, small streets and huge buildings, restaurants, museums, historical buildings, churches... It has it's own atmosphere. Extremelly recommend.

The Old Town of Bucharest is really beautiful. It has pavement alleys, traditional buildings and smells of good food! It is also a ''hot spot'' for youth to go out! You can find anything there...history, tradition, romanian food, turkish food, indian food, shops with antiques, nice kafeterias and bars, little churches....Overall it is a great place to have a walk!
