If you want to combine cultural sightseeing with enjoying a good beer or several types of international food, you should walk around the Old Town, just in the city center. Full of various pubs and restaurants, from the fast ones to gourmet places, it also has some of the oldest buildings in Bucharest, as the Manuc Inn, St. Anton church,... More

Maybe it was the fact that we visited on a pretty dreary Sunday afternoon? There certainly were a few grand and well-preserved buildings. However, these seemed to be massively outnumbered by the slick bars, pubs, restaurants, coffee shops and food outlets that you would expect to find in any European capital or major city. Nothing special...on a Sunday afternoon at... More

a lot of new and very old buildings at the same time, both very attractive. At night it reminds me the Amsterdam red district, but no drugs seen in the streets. A lot of young people and a lot of police presence makes me feel safe.

If you visit Bukarest and you miss the Old Town, than you lose a lot from the local taste; especially if you love a good atmosphere. You have everything you need: history, beautiful people and good restaurants. During the evening and night transforms itself and you'll still have what to do in the morning at 7.00-8.00 A.M when you'll have... More

Visited the old town this weekend, great choice of bars and clubs, best way to describe it is Ibiza at -8 so bring your jacket in February. A great place for foodies at half the price of Ireland.
