Very interesting place, with many bars and pubs. Moderate prices. If you want to drink a craft beer, a nice ice cream or go to the club, this is the place.

From the old town you can easily find a bar or a restaurant for everyone's taste. some of the old houses would require some renovation.

The area is full of old houses, some of them renovated and some authentic. Galleries, cafes, restaurants, street food, artisan shops, theater, and a unique bookstore Carosel. The district is bustling with tourists and locals in the evening who come to enjoy themselves.

The architecture and statues with a couple of churches are the main sights. Great for food and drink and has some lively night life. Can experience fully in a day.

The old town offers lots of bars and restaurants and good nightlife. Bucharest does not have the prettiest scenery but the old town is good place to spend some time.

Just a 20 minute walk from our hotel, we had a wander down. Quite a few bars and restuarants to choose from at quite good prices. Friendly people about ready to help and reccomend where they think is best.

Quaint shops to visit, good restaurants to enjoy, the Carosel Bookstore on Lipscani Street to browse in...and more. What more could a visitor hope for in this lovely European capital city?

One of the places you have to go stroll and go restaurants or bars. The entire old town area is must see for first timer tourists to the capital. Day or especially nights, it is a good time to go there and relax with friends, have a beer or wine, and something to eat at one of the many restaurants.

A nice place to hang out with friends. Coffee shops, restaurants and hotels... all you need when you travel in one place.
