Probably the most dynamic place in the city a lot of bars and restaurant, all types of cuisine.The one things i don't t like is the people who try to get you in thay are restaurant kind of rude. But if you like really crowded and busy place that's the spot

There is a vast amount of options for places to eat, shop, and do. There are many souvenir shops as well. A food truck market as well as a Antique and handmade bazaar.

But there is a lot of restoration work going on and usually scaffolding is in place. The choice of food and drink in... More

This place is full of clubs & pubs. You'll barely have place to walk. Stripper & Agents will leave you no scope to get bored while walking

The old town is a multitude of restaurants, clubs, small eateries, art, bookstores. Always animated, always fun, with a blend of tourists and locals. Simple put, when in Bucharest you have to go and hang out in Old Town.
