This passage way has a few little cafe/bar spots there are worth a leisurely stop if you're in the area or -in our case- if it's raining. There was a violinist - made for nice ambiance. Overall not spectacular, but a nice little area.

Visited here on a walking tour- interesting history behind this building and it's original purpose. It's a stunning looking building, with a horseshoe design. Now it's mostly a shisha place which smells bad! It'd be nicer if it was cafes without the shisha. I wouldn't...More

Almost to miss it as it has a narrow entrance from one side. Inside it was sooo hot and it lacked air or ventilation. Small interesting passage packed with cafes and restaurants that offer shisha - the Arabic water tube smoking with plenty of flavours....More

I came across this attraction during my walk along the Victorei Street. Entering this Passage, I saw restaurants and bars here. Due the limitation of spaces here, there are no separate areas for non- smoking diners here.

We're not sure whether many of the shops are permanently closed, some certainly are,or were just closed when we visiting late on morning. Sure, the architecture is interesting, but with vacant or closed shops it lacks character.

Macca Villacrosse Passage is a fork-shaped, yellow glass covered arcaded street in central Bucharest. It was completed in 1891 and looks quite similar to other glass covered passages in Milan or Paris. There are many Arabic themed cafes where you can smoke water pipe and...More

Full of very macho guys smoking sisha. The European imported architecture is beautiful, the gallery reminds of some others in the Hapsburg Empire, although Bucharest was barely, during very short times under its sway. It hosts the seedy nightlife and cafe scene of the whole...More

A cozy small tiny street full of cafes and restaurant, it’s nice to spend some time there in the afternoon.

You can see that it used to be a beautiful place, but that is no longer the case. There is netting under the roof so what was once a gorgeous passageway just looks like a sad reminder that it's in desperate need of repair. The...More
