Worth visiting and checking out the landmarks in the area. Lots of little corners of interest and with historical value. Nice to see how well developed the city is and the nice insfrastucture considering some of the history and obstacles faced by Romanians.

A pleasant landscaped square to walk through with the statues of important people in Romanian history paced along the square, facing the imposing but rather forbidding facade of the University of Bucharest. Somehow, it doesn't feel very welcoming, especially with graffiti along the lower walls,...More

Good but not much to do there, a photo by the Bucharest sign is more than enough of a reason to have a quick visit

Home of the University of Bucharest. Interesting buildings, statues. It is something of a focal point of this part of Bucharest and one is drawn through it many times when walking around the city.

University Square is surrounded by amazing architecture. The square is well-maintained and clean. I was here multiple occasions in 2018 and recommend it to all visitors to Bucharest.

The place literally doesn't change from visit to visit. Everything is still there, including the dirty streets and the graffiti on the walls (which is anything but artistic). You don't need more than 5 minutes just to pass through this area.

The university is the back drop of a large square. It was busy with a theater festival when we visited. There was also a group of protesters walking through. It seemed peaceful, but we avoid protests when traveling so we did not linger. Interesting how...More
