The old town of Bucharest has a lot of old buildings, some very well maintained and super beautiful, others are fading away, showing you another reality of the city. You have plenty of choice when it comes to attractions, food, drink and dancing.

Nice atmosphere with lots of restaurants and bars. A great place to relax after an exciting day in Bucharest. But be prepared everywhere you go people are trying to attract your attention to have you to eat or drink at their wonderful place
