a lot of new and very old buildings at the same time, both very attractive. At night it reminds me the Amsterdam red district, but no drugs seen in the streets. A lot of young people and a lot of police presence makes me feel safe.

If you visit Bukarest and you miss the Old Town, than you lose a lot from the local taste; especially if you love a good atmosphere.

The old town seemed a little bit drab in daytime. There are a lot of pizzerias, pubs and nightclubs and other fast food restaurants. I assume that a visit on a summer night is much more interesting.
