      Why the Old Town is the best place to stay in Bucharest? (part I)

      Be it for business or leisure, we are looking for the best option in terms of (preferably) central accommodation, access to public transportation and touristic attractions. 

      The best area to stay in Bucharest as a tourist is definitely the Old Town, also known as "Centrul Vechi", the historic centre. For CNN Travel, the Old Town is "one of the liveliest nightlife zones in Europe" and the top reason to come visit Bucharest while BBC finds is "a charming, walkable quarter with enough worthy distractions to keep you occupied for the day and enough bars and clubs to ensure you never have to sleep."

      Central Accommodation in Bucharest near the Old Town - Europa Royale

      But is it more to the Old Town than the pubs, bars and all night parties? We believe so, therefore we put together a list of unique points of interest at a walking distance from the hotel. Discover them during your visit in Bucharest and let us know which ones were your favourites!

      Strada Franceza

      Start your walk with a stroll down on "Strada Franceza" (French Street), right where Europa Royale hotel is located, and discover one of the oldest streets in Bucharest. The first street to be paved with cobblestone in 1860, it became known as the "French Street" when the French Consul in Bucharest took up his residence here. Associated with brilliant bridal parties, as well as the great fire from 1847, was also named "The High Court Street" as this is where the old royal court was founded.

      The Old Princely Court

      Located on the French Street, at a two-minute distance from the hotel, the Old Princely Court is the the oldest medieval monument in Bucharest. It was a palace and court (Palatul Curtea Veche) and ground zero, the place where the city started growing around. It is also the place of the first reign of Vlad Ţepeş, a Romanian leader that ruled Valachia between 1459 and 1462. Although his name might not say much to you, it is very probable that you know him from his more famous fictional character alter-ego, Dracula. You can visit the Court everyday from Monday to Sunday, between 10:00 – 18:00.

      Hanul Lui Manuc

      Just across the street there is "Manuc's Inn", a Romanian commercial and cultural landmark, also known as the meeting point for travellers from Transylvania, Ottoman Empire and Europe. The building was completely renovated to restore the original Brancovenesc style and it is open to public, hosting occasional cultural shows and culinary events in its beautiful indoor garden.

      To be continued.

      Why the Old Town is the best place to stay in Bucharest? (part II)

      The mysterious charm of the historic churches

      In some hidden street corners, behind big buildings, you will discover tiny churches and chapels that date from the 17th and 18th centuries.

      With elaborate indoor wall paintings and frescoes and a blend of elements of Byzantine and Renaissance styles, those churches are beautiful representations of the Eastern Orthodox ecclesiastical architecture.

      The most renowned is the Stavropoleos Church, located on the street with the same name, just near another well known historic building, Caru' cu Bere. Other churches to visit include St. Anton Church, the oldest church in Bucharest dating from 16th century, as well as Antim Church, Doamnei Church, or Saint Demetrius Church.

      Cutting edge design and contemporary art

      If you enjoy discovering new artists and art in general, there are some very nice galleries to visit near the Old Town. The Galateca Gallery (with its shop, Neogalateca) is a multidisciplinary art and design gallery, located near The National Museum of Art.

      Zorzini Gallery displays Romanian contemporary art in an industrial space of 170 sqm, ODD includes both Romanians and international artists and focuses on installations and performances, while Elite Gallery features contemporary art and the works of "Balcic painters", one of the most important modern art projects.

      Carturesti Carusel Bookstore

      Lose yourself among more than 10,000 books in this amazing "space for lecture, culture, socializing and artistic exploration", as Carturesti Carousel describes itself. On six levels that make for 1000 sqm, the bookstore includes also a bistro, a modern art gallery and a multimedia space.

      "... but nothing that the local Barnes&Noble rolls out will ever compare to this beautiful bookstore in Romania transformed from a monument. They

      claim it's a bookstore but it looks kind of how I envision heaven" writes one of  


      Some of the top endorsements for Bucharest by travellers are architecture, food and museums. On Calea Victoriei, the main route that borders The Old Town, you can find The Romanian History Museum, considered the most important museum of the Romanian state. It has artifacts from prehistoric times up to modern times and permanent displays that include the Romanian Crown Jewels and the Pietroasele treasure. The Municipal History Museum - also called The Sutu Palace -  is one of the oldest aristocratic residences in Bucharest and a host of exhibitions that present the history of the city. Both the Romanian History Museum and Bucharest History Museum are located in the Old Town, at a 10 min walking distance from each other.

      We hope you liked the recommendations. As we are one of the few Bucharest Old Town hotels, we know the history and the story behind the most important city landmarks, some of them loaded with historic and cultural significance.

      Ask the hotel concierge for personalized recommendations during your stay at Europa Royale, your favourite Bucharest Old Town hotel, and enjoy the tour!
