The best malls in Bucharest

The amazing capital city of Romania is filled with all sorts of attractions for tourists and locals. Besides the wonderful museums, plazas and famous buildings, Bucharest is a city with plenty of places to shop. A trip to Romania should also include a trip to a Bucharest mall, for its quality merchandise and impressive architecture.

Yes, some malls in Bucharest have amazing architecture, and have become a popular place for leisure activities. Did you know that you can do much more than shopping and going to the movies in the best malls in Bucharest?

”Little Paris” holds many surprises - let’s discover what a Bucharest mall has to offer!


The first Bucharest mall


The first Bucharest mall ever built is Mall Vitan. Also known as București Mall, at the time of its completion it was the first shopping mall in Romania. It was opened in 1999 - almost 20 years ago. While it may seem like a lot of time has passed, this Bucharest mall still is a popular destination for many people.

Situated only a few short bus stops away from the Old City, this mall is pretty close to the center of Bucharest. What you can do here, besides shopping and enjoying lunch, coffee or a movie, is to gamble in one of the biggest gaming halls in the city.

Game World is filled with a wide variety of games, prizes and jackpots. If you’re feeling lucky and want to take a chance with a few slot games, this is the place to go. During the weekends, Game World hosts themed parties with DJs and live bands, dancers and raffle prizes. Some themes have been Bohemian Night, Monte Carlo Party or White Sensation Party.

With its lively atmosphere, it is no wonder that this Bucharest mall is still one of the best malls in Bucharest! Grab the 123 or 124 bus from Unirii Square for six stops and you’ll get there in no time - the bus station is right in front of București Mall.


The best mall in Bucharest for leisure activities


The newest and most impressive Bucharest mall is the Park Lake Shopping Center. This mall has a great location - as the title suggests, it is situated right next to Titan Park, with a view of its lake, on Liviu Rebreanu Street.

ParkLake stands out as a unique shopping center, designed according to the latest urban and architectural standards, located in a natural setting. The concept of this Bucharest mall is to be represented as an extension of the relaxing environment of the neighboring park.  It is considered one of the best malls in Bucharest because it manages to create a new perspective over shopping, recreation, but also sports and relaxation.

The beautiful design and photogenic concept are all based on the idea of nature. Add a visit to this mall on the list of  things to do in Bucharest!

The multifunctional sport court situated in the mall is a space where visitors can play basketball, volleyball, tennis, and even football. The sport court is filled with natural light coming through the tall window wall overseeing the park. Who would have thought that going to the mall can be a healthy activity?

Park Lake also hosts workshops and organises events such as charities for stray animals, urban garden parties, concerts and all sorts of raffles with prizes.

So, if you want to escape the city for a few hours while shopping for famous brands such as Adidas, Levi’s®, Cellini, Ecco and many more, Park Lake is the place to visit. If you wish to participate at an event for social causes, go over and get involved!

If you want to play sports indoors while enjoying natural light, go check out the best mall in Bucharest!

Also, here, as in every mall, you can go to the cinema and enjoy the latest international productions (with Romanian subtitles).

Remember that just outside the mall there is a park you can walk around and take pictures by the lake for a great addition to your photo gallery!


Mall Băneasa, on the way to the airport


A very conveniently located Bucharest mall is Băneasa Shopping City, on the way to the airport. Here, you can go on a shopping spree if your flight is in the afternoon or evening. This mall does feel like a city within a city, and it may take some time to go to every store to shop for clothes, accessories and cosmetics. There are many international luxury brands you can purchase at good prices.

If you did not manage to go shopping while you were staying in Bucharest, this final destination before leaving the city will satisfy your consumer needs. So, make sure not to leave Romania without a luxury item purchased at this huge and wildly popular Bucharest mall!

Mica Elveție (Little Switzerland) organized in a hotel in the old city center of Bucharest

The old city is a living thing, an organism subject to constant change. Places which one liked - and used to go to - disappear over night without notice and new restaurants open up, restaurants one knows nothing about and need some testing first.
