The area of the old town is a little difficult to distinguish. There aren't any streets that signify the borders.just need to wander around the area to get the flavour or atmosphere of the old town.

Bucharest old town certainly can't be considered in par with almost any of the great old towns of many European cities, as during the day there are not many places that could be considered of extraordinary beauty but at night and specially during the weekend, the place comes alive and there are plenty of very lively restaurants, bars and clubs....

We rented an apartment here, lovely and bustling in the evenings, possibly could get rowdy later at night. Really precious architecture, lovely boutique shops, great vibe all around. Plus there is a Carrefour near enough and lots of banks.

Been to many European cities with old towns and this is by far the worst. The whole city of Bucharest is noisy with traffic with liberal use of the horn by drivers. The old town does give some respite but the buildings are old and grubby and with no great character. Numerous bars and restaurants with many different nationality dishes... More

I really love the old town district in Bucharest, I think the city's charm is deeply understated. The whole area is reserved for pedestrians, with loads of bars and restaurants. Its usually crowded which give the place a good ambiance, especially in the evenings.

During the day the old town has a quiet feel of any old town with beautiful buildings and historical churches. There are lots of restaurants and bars. After 9pm it turns into a party town full of young people.

Old town has lots of restaurants but not all of them are good. It's also a little bit expensive. There are also a few theatres and a church. it's pretty nice to walk around this area.

When you're in town it's a must. The Old Town of Bucharest is easy to fall in love with. Beautiful buildings, walking streets filled with shops, pubs, bars and restaurants. Good nightlife, on friday and saturday night it gets crowdy almost everywhere until early morning.

The old Town of Bucharest is most probably the most dangerous place to visit in Bucharest, almost all the buildings are falling down :) But as long as no earthquake is happening you are safe.
