Unirii Square, Bucharest
(2.4/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It is a pleasant sight if you are passing up. Unfortunately, there is provision to sit and enjoy the place. 
  • Let's say that as this is the pivot point between the metro 1.3 and 2 is busy and lively. Within walking distance are located many of the city's attractions and, if you are in the Christmas season, even the Christmas markets, which are worth visiting. It's a shame, though, having arrived during the period when the fountains are off due to the tremendous cold. Though they knew still give value to piazza and fountains with the Christmas lights.

  • Big square made for a megalomaniac dictator with a "kitsch" touch. Yes probably is quite unique but better you find something else to do. If windy, you will feel it :)
