I didnt have good references from local friends living abroad, but it is really live zone, a lot of bars and restaurants, and to be honest, some buildings are not in the best condition but you can take great and beaty pictures. And it is cheap.

Most of the tourists come to the old town for the dozens of clubs, bars and restaurants. But there are also a number of old buildings, with beautiful architecture. Unfortunately, most of the buildings, including many of the above-mentioned clubs, are not well maintained at all of them present a high seismic risk. But who gives a f...penny, let's have some fun...

Lots of Old Buildings
Apr 2020
So much culture and history in the Old Town. I arrived in the evening and I found the Old Town enchanting with the dim lights and hardly any person loitering around I guess because of the virus. But it somehow gave me a feeling of being in an old movie in the 1950s because most of the buildings were old but not run down. I stayed in an apartment just across some of the government buildings at the center of town.

Bucharest old town is a magic place. Full of positive energies. Each time I go there it seems I'm recharging my batteries. A lot of nice restaurants and pubs, a lot of building just restored and old ones to be seen and visited. You can find also new stores, libraries and a lot of things to see. Everything in a little number of square kilometers.

Divert off the main streets
Sep 2020
Visited in September 2020, wonderful to walk around, look at the architecture & soak up the atmosphere.
We were required to wear face masks on the Friday evening around town, but not mandatory at other times. Victoria Pasajul is a little gem. In the evening lots of restaurants hawking for business but all pretty friendly if not interested. Would recommend!

Lovely old town

Visited Bucharest for three days in August 2020 and highly recommend the old town as a busy, vibrant and great place to hang out. Underestimated how nice it would be. Also very close to the piata urinii fountains

Beautiful old town with a lot of bars, restaurants and ancient churches. The streets are bad (don’t wear heels) but it has a certain charm.

Very pretty
Feb 2020 • Couples
Lovely area with a lot of character. I liked the elegant buildings with restaurants, cafés and stores. You can find there a very beautiful bookstore and a very modern Starbucks, cute places to have a drink or eat outside or inside, the oldest church in Bucharest and also places for nightlife. It’s a nice mix of variety of places and I loved strolling around.
