4/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web
Lipscani preserves the spirit of pre-World War II in its many restaurants, bohemian bars, live music venues, and antique stores selling old photos of the city. From the Middle Ages to the early 19th century, the area was flooded with merchants from Western Europe. Recent excavations revealed ancient thoroughfares and fortifications several meters underneath the street level. Walk the wooden sidewalks along the edges of restored apartment buildings with baroque balconies. See the ruins of the nearby Princely Court with the bust of Vlad the Impaler. On the north side of the district stands the 18th-century Stavropoleos Church, an evocative temple. With our international travel planner, Bucharest attractions like Lipscani can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • The most "ancient" Bucharest ... you will find many restaurants, pubs and bars ... very beautiful palaces and old churches. A must visit to see what to eat. Great neighborhood

  • Super Awesome area. Wish Canada had a neighborhood like this. Super, super fun. Loads of cafes and restaurants. Extremely vibrant. 
  • This street is so peculiar and beautiful that it fully deserves the status of a notable point of interest in itself.
