Bucharest, once known as “Little Paris”, is trying to regain its name. I visited yesterday the Old City Center and I‘ve been more than pleased to see that a part of the reabilitation of this beautiful Lipscani Area is finished and it looks really great. New cafes are opening here, as this one, Cafe Van Gogh, located on Smardan Street, next to the Romanian National Bank building, near the entrance on Lipsani Street.
Unusual items for sale at Thomas Antiques – a shop on Covaci Street no 19, Lipscani Area.
The Old Princely Court was a place of residence for Vlad the Devil in the 15th century; nowadays is a museum near Lipscani Area.
