Unirii Square, Bucharest

2.5
#58 of 294 in Things to do in Bucharest
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.

    This square is relatively close to the Palace of the Parliament, one of the most important buildings in this city. Has some very interesting fountains that convey a very nice atmosphere. Always with a lot of movement,

    Together with Boulevardul Unirii provides a spectacular image. The large central fountain and especially those all along the Avenue satisfy the view and in the evening, when they are variously lit, with their water features are a real spectacle and give a great splendor.

    Huge and chaotic square, which includes all major activities and attractions in the city. Of difficult crossing, so beware, and be prepared for long walks!

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.
