  • This place is marked by the figure of Vlad Tepes-the so-called Dracula, who will have about 500 year reign. Currently closed for works, but you can see the ruins.

  • Passing in front of one can't be lured by a bust of count Vlad and you learn to be the ruins of a residence of his family ... There is also a museum attached, unvisited.

  • It's the old Princely Court, Vlad III Dracula's residence-you veere the statue. Now running out and the area is all a building site to restore what was once the historic city.

  • Place is currently (summer 2017) closed because of reconstruction but you can see most of the monuments from the street.
  • I should've learned about Bucharest, before visit! but it looks nice
  • A very nice place, full of old history (-ies)! It need a better administration, for sure
  • Great piece of medieval history right in the center of town. Worth a visit. It's just a shame that the buildings in front of it are a bit of a mess a day take away from the experience. Also, during winter, the sidewalk in front of the gate can be a bit slippery.
  • Still under restauration, however many of its buildings are visible from the street level.

Where to stay in Bucharest

To take advantage of Bucharest's lively downtown, look for accommodations in the areas of Universitatii square, Unirii, Romana, or Victoriei to be closest to bars, clubs, and restaurants, as well as many of the major sights. Choose from a variety of hostels and budget hotels, or book a night at one of the mid-range or luxury hotels. If you decide to venture farther out of the city, look for lodging close to public transportation to avoid the city's notoriously bad traffic.
