Lipscani Street Area

If you visit Bucharest and want to feel the spirit of old city, take a walk on Lipscani Street Area in the historic center.

The name of the street comes from Lipsca ( Romanian translation of German name Leipzig) merchants; in the past they brought goods from their country and sold them in small shops in this area. Little streets still keep the names of the traditional professionals who lived there.

Nowadays, the authorities have began the restoration of this area briging it to life again (in the photo you can see a small part of it).
