    This is considered to be the old town of Bucharest and is a great pedestrian area with lots of bars and restaurants.

    This is the ideal place to go bar hopping, although you might no get to do all the bars. Very impressed with this place

    All of the old downtown is crowded with outside seating for the numerous bars, restaurants and cafes. I guess all toruists do is eat and drink ;-)

    While a little run down in places, it is worth the time to walk the Lipscani district. We had a guide, but it is a small area so a guide may not have been necessary. Perhaps the most interesting part was the monument of Vlad the Impaler and lecture about how the legend of Dracula developed from his history. Be sure to visit Patriarchial Cathedral just down the street!

    This is probably the best place to come and party at a bar or restaurant in Bucharest. The street is filled with countless restaurants and bars with loud music (and, alas, smoking) everywhere.

    A very cool street that has a lot of activity and places to frequent. Bars, some shopping and many restaurants. A must go in Old Town.

    The lively Bucharest old city centre is a compact area with an enormous amount of pubs and restaurant. Many buildings have been renovated and is now a really pleasant area. Some buildings are still in ruins though, that adds to the general character of the area. A few pretty churches and palaces will keep your camera busy, and you will find yourself taking more pictures to banks (the prettiest renovated palaces) than you probably ever did before.

    Traditional old type buildings, shops and food and beverage venues surely attract any tourists. Many options for food and beverages. Must visit if u at Bucuresti.

    I've seen several European cities & their walking areas around the Old Town but this one struck. I know every such area will boast in cafes, bars, and similar drinking places but this struck me with abundance of night clubs, shoterias, hookah bars, massage parlors, hints on striptease or more ("hot touch massage") which is too much for my taste. Even Amsterdam with its freedom of coffee shops, gay clubs (I'm totally supportive of LGBTQ), and the red district felt more decent / high class in comparison. The area gave me the feeling of a place for students & backpackers looking for brainless parties & drunk adventures. This might be just me, so don't take it too seriously, you might very well love the place - it does have many interesting spots & hidden gems like architecture, shops, and cafes with local food. Overall it was quite interesting.

    Unfortunately an ugly dark grey color old building but shows a not so beautiful but a true & different perspective of city's history.

    Lipscani street is now a world away since my high school years when I used to wander around with my colleagues, making frequent visits to the aquarium pet shop that ran out of business a while ago. A place filled with 19th century history, Lipscani used to be the merchants' neighborhood, especially the ones from Leipzig, Germany. It's great to see that some decayed buildings have been consolidated and what used to be a risky gang territory at night is now buzzing with (mostly foreign) visitors. A bit too expensive for my taste, but still highly recommendable for anyone visiting Bucharest.

    I've already reviewed OLD TOWN....and all i can say is THANK GOODNESS we did NOT stay there for 4 nights. What's there? Bars,restaurants and cobbled streets and hawkers? We stayed way north at the Hotel Christina and couldn't be happier. Don't fall for the hype!

    The LIPSCANI street and its surroundings used to be the commercial heart of Bucharest over 150 years - and some of the buildings there date back up to 180 years ago...But unfortunately decay & neglect have left their ugly mark all over and one misses on the nostalgia which the place is supposed to invoke...However the area has got a new "Breath of Life" through the OLD TOWN modern night Life streets around, full of Bars, Restaurants, Coffee Shops, etc..

    Great place to walk around or have a drink or meal ! Well worth the visit and I loved the atmosphere. Quite quiet during the day but still worth wandering around. At night it's really alive and kicking !
