This is an area that is in the center of the city comprising one of it's oldest areas. It includes the remnants of a castle or fortification that Vlad Tepes used in the 15th century. It is also an area that is alive with restaurants, bars and clubs full of tourists and locals.

We visited the old town in late November, and we were expecting more Christmas decorations, but unfortunately, there were only a few. The cold season is not the best time of year to experience the old town, especially not the crumbling parts (and there are quite a few of those around).

Surprisingly beautiful and with a very interesting history. I would recommend taking one of the free walking tours to visit it. It is also full of restaurants and clubs/pubs.

I loved Old Town when I recently visited Romania! There is so much to see in terms of history and local culture, as well as plenty of great places to eat. You shouldn't leave Bucharest without a visit!

The Old Town is a safe, clean centre with good hotels, restaurants and bars. An excellent base to explore the rest of Bucharest.

First time back in Bucharest after 3 years of leaving Craiova. We used to visit Bucharest often. When we first came here in 2010 it looked a very different place. Much renovation was needed but hadn't been started. Now the pavements are great. Many buildings look better. Still work to do. Lots of bustling restaurants. Long summer nights spent walking... More
