Unirii Square, Bucharest

2.4
#10 of 67 in Sightseeing in Bucharest
Landmark Tourist Spot
Unirii Square, the largest square in the capital city, features a metro station, a taxi rank, a shopping mall, a department store, and a small central park with fountains. Try some traditional Romanian cuisine at the early 19th-century inn, often referred to as "the last caravansary of South Eastern Europe," on the north side of the square. Alternatively, grab a bite at one of the fast-food stands. You can also walk from the square to the House of Parliament and the old town. Be cautious, traffic around the square can be very busy. Put Unirii Square and other Bucharest attractions into our Bucharest trip builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

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.
