Lipscani, Bucharest
(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.

  • Its a street on the old town of bucharest. Lovely place with good bars. Get a beer or dine there the place is wonderfull with full of life. 
  • Very nice ballad in the bustling old town. In the end not a lot of tourists. But this is atypical, and I do not recommend anyone to venture there at the beginning of the night, around 2: 00 in the morning, when guys come out of bars. A lot of police officers into a weapon for vigilance. I do not recommend this for a couple after midnight. Lot of prostitutes come dock you. Just be warned.

  • We made two small acquisitions in the street ... and after a day of exploring Bucharest we treated ourselves to a great coffee with cream sitting outside with a blanket over his legs.
