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).

  1. Thank you for visiting Bucharest Daily Colours !

    This is a question from Ben, isn’t it ? Well, you could order a Romanian drink called “tzuica” (or something even better known as “palinca”, which I strongly reccomend !). Accompanied by a large plate full of “sarmale” – a traditional meal made of sour cabbage and pork. I can give you the receipe if you’re interested.

    Your website is very interesting – I like very much Meg’s shawls. We could do business together, you know ? Look on http://www.eurocadouri.com

    All the best – keep in touch
