The Heartbeat of Bucharest: The Old Town

A trip to Bucharest is incomplete without immersing oneself in its Old Town. This historic heart of the city, known locally as ‘Centrul Vechi’, brims with winding cobblestone pathways flanked by architectural marvels that narrate tales from bygone eras. Here, historical jewels like the 15th-century Curtea Veche and the stunning Stavropoleos Monastery stand as testimonials to Romania’s rich cultural tapestry.

Few places encapsulate Bucharest’s essence as the Old Town does. Not only is it a visual treat, but it’s also historically significant. This area is where the city’s pulse originated. The Old Town was the site of Prince Vlad III’s court, the inspiration behind Bram Stoker’s Dracula. As you navigate its lanes, the ruins of his Princely Court (Curtea Veche) stand as silent witnesses to Bucharest’s medieval legacy.
