*Visited July 2021* Bucharest Old Town, Centru Vechi is the historical heart of the city, it is relatively small but is extremely charismatic. There are a lot of the buildings that have been restored to their former glory whilst others have been left to crumble. The old town dates back to 1459 and was impacted by being on the trading route from the Ottoman Empire to the north. There are many bars and restaurants dotted around as well as squares and hidden passages and I had many enjoyable walks within the old town area when I visited in July 2021.

Was here for a documentary shoot and then we got dinner after and did some shopping. It's a beautiful, old area with many restaurants and shops, plus a couple of old churches. The architecture is beautiful. I forget the name of the restaurant we went to, but it was great- food was delicious and there was live dancing and music! The Cărturești Carusel bookshop was gorgeous! Definitely go see!

Lots of bars and strip clubs. Was expecting something nicer. It’s not really a nice, quaint peaceful place like the old districts in many other cities.

Just go for a wander, some incredible French style architecture, as well as a range of bars and cafes. The little monastery on Strada Stavropoleos and the Caru' cu Bere on the same street are definitely worth a visit.

Many restaurants and bars in this area among beautiful buildings along narrow streets and alleys. Worth wandering through and visiting historic churches in the area.

Kicks up a notch when the sun goes down. A mix of locals, tourists and party goers alike, there's something for everyone.

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...
