Lots of restaurants !

We visited the Old Town in Bucharest, but it looked like mainly cafes and restaurants! Maybe we missed other things. There are old and new buildings. Pleasant walk.

The old part of town still keeps the old building with great architecture. Given the influx of customers, the area has developed a lot, and have invested a lot of money into renovating buildings and restaurants furniture. They are also more modern clubs in the area open until morning, including frequented by many foreigners. In conclusion the area is very... More

Old Town has a bit of everything. If you're looking for culture and history, there is plenty of it within the city; from the banks to the Biserica, there are many places to visit. At night, the illuminated buildings are equally impressive, especially the National Bank. Even taking pictures of the nightlife is impressive; the best shot may be looking... More

walking around the old town during the night and during the day it's a completely different sensation. During the night you'll appreciate all the cool pubs and loud music everywhere. During the day you'll see a different face of the city: man on work everywhere, buildings ready to fall apart in every moment, but also some nice old and new... More
