Lipscani Street

Quaint street with beautiful architecture. Many restaurants and bars. Good for a stroll in the morning or in the afternoon, really noisy in the night.

Probably the best place in Bucharest. The place has lots of coffee shops and pubs and restaurants. The history of the place is amazing and the buildings are beautiful and people are warm.

This is a street on the north side of Old Town that runs through it from Calea Victoriei to the west all the way to the highway, Bulevardal Ion C.Bratianu to the east. There are many restaurants and bars lining its length from one end to the other. You'll find many places to choose from to drink and eat.

This is a great place to go to find good bars and eateries. It's a bit of a hub for locals and tourists alike and we tended to gravitate towards it on each of our few evenings in the city Nice friendly vibe, good music and great life about the place. It's quieter by day but good cafes and restaurants... More

Probably the most touristic street in the whole of Bucharest. Did not understand the fuss about it as all the streets in the Old Town have lovely bars and restaurants.

It may be the "heart of the city" to some but it's just too full of questionable people and bars. Not a place to venture at night for sure, unless you like that sort of thing. Not the type of Romanian culture I wanted to see.

Ok area. Lots of contrasts between old style churches and modern or communist buildings. Fascinating stories about how some buildings were moved whole to save them.
