Lipscani, Bucharest

3.9
#3 of 10 in Neighborhoods in Romania
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.

  • Lipscani is the heart of Bucharest. The day, it's a place where it is good to wander, wander through the store, stopping to visit some churches or have a coffee on the terrace. As soon as the sun sets, it's a place of celebration, with lots of music, and different atmosphere. Concerts of street, and other animations. There is something for everyone!

  • One of the best atmosphere of the city streets. It is ideal for travel on Friday or weekend. Without a doubt, one of the points with more attractions in Bucuresti. * TIP: Number 55 you'll find Carturesti Carusel library. It is a beautiful and unique in the world. You can not visit the Congress of Bucuresti without seeing it!
