Too many outdoor cafes spoil the broth, thereby removing the feel of an old town! Otherwise, it's a pleasant experience walking around.

The Old Town is a very very busy place to visit. Many places to eat and many places to buy souvenirs, if you are shopping for some. The crowds are friendly and there is music around most of the time.

It's a must if you go to Bucharest. Lovely old buildings in places which gives a great atmosphere. Tucked away bars and coffee shops.
