Hello,

Yes it is safe, but take care of your luggage and where do you book.

If you could tell me more details about your trip plan in Bucharest i could help you with more informations, and even guide you so that you would not be scam or any other incovenient events.

Just PM in private if you have questions or just reply here, have a nice day

It is safe if you are not crossing the "golden rules".
Don't go in the "bad areas" of the city (Ferentari, Rahova), don't spend nigts alone in Pubs or Clubs. It's the same as everywhere in Europe as far as I know.

Travel Tips for Bucharest

bucharest

by pufunk

Cultural events and festivals:
There are a number of cultural festivals in Bucharest throughout the year, in various domains, even though most festivals take place in the summer months of June, July and August. The National Opera organises the International Opera Festival every year in May and June, which includes ensembles and orchestras from all over the world. The Romanian Athaeneum Society hosts the George Enescu Classical Music Festival at various locations throughout the city in September every year. Additionally, the Museum of the Romanian Peasant and the Village Museum organise a number of events throughout the year showcasing Romanian folk arts and crafts.n 2005, Bucharest was the first city in Southeastern Europe to host the international CowParade, which resulted in dozens of decorated cow sculptures being placed at various points across the city.

Since 2005 Bucharest has its own contemporary art biennale, the Bucharest Biennale. The current (2006) issue (curated by Zsolt Pétranyi) will go on until the end of June, the next edition will be in 2008.
Education:

Bucharest is the most important centre of education in Romania, even though other cities such as Iaşi and Cluj-Napoca contain a number of prestigious educational institutions. The University of Bucharest is the city's largest and most well-known higher education institution, and, opening in 1694 as the Academy of Saint Sava, it is Romania's first university.
Other major universities in the capital include: the Polytechnic University of Bucharest, the Academy of Economic Studies, the Carol Davila Medical and Pharmaceutical University, the University of Agricultural Sciences and Veterinary Medicine, the Technical University of Construction, Bucharest, the Romanian-American University and the British Romanian University. Media:

Bucharest is the most important centre for the Romanian mass media, since it is the headquarters of all the national television networks as well as national newspapers and radio stations. The largest daily newspapers in Bucharest include Evenimentul Zilei, Jurnalul Naţional, Cotidianul, România Liberă, Adevărul, Gardianul and Gândul. During the rush hours, tabloid newspapers Libertatea and Ziarul are very popular for commuters.
A significant number of newspapers and media publications are based in Casa Presei Libere (The House of the Free Press) a landmark of northern Bucharest, originally named Casa Scânteii after the Communist-era official newspaper Scînteia.
English-language media became available in Bucharest in the 1990s, and has become increasingly prominent since 2000. There are two daily English-language newspapers, Bucharest Daily News and Nine O' Clock, as well as numerous other magazines.
Academia Caţavencu, the usual array of commercial magazines one would find in any European capital.
Bucharest is the host city of the fourth edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2006

Portrayal in film and fiction:

* The Romanian-language film Filantropica ("Philanthropy", 2002) [2] gives a satiric portrayal of the city and of many strata of its life.
* The English-language film The Wild Dogs (2002) [3] gives a more uniformly bleak portrait of the city.
* The English-dubbed film Entre chiens et loups (2002) [4] features various parts of the city, suburbs & nite-spots as a backdrop to a French action movie.
* Wesley Snipes starred in 7 Seconds (2005), an action flick filmed entirely on location in Bucharest. [5] The film features the city's varied architecture.
* Historic Communist Bucharest was depicted in Jack Chick's first comic book, "Operation Bucharest", first published in 1974. It is loosely based on a Baptist Ministry called "Couriers For Christ" based there.

Put on your walking shoes and wander!

by tiganeasca

Wander around. Although Bucuresti is a large city, you can see a great deal of it on foot because so much of what a tourist probably wants to see is generally in the same area. Walk up and down the Calea Victoriei, walk over to the University, shop on B-dul M. Kogalniceanu. Visit Cismigiu and the Stavropoleos Church. Okay--take a taxi to the People's Palace and the Village Museum. But you do yourself a disservice if you don't simply wander the streets and discover such spots as strada Lipscani and so many others.

Packing List

by Fam_Stoica

Try to choose easy-to-use bags (like troller-bags) - the pedestrian ways in Bucharest are not very plane ! I recommend you some warm clothes (for the winter) and comfortable shoes. The major photo equipment producers have specialised shops in Bucharest (there are also many dealers, resellers and distributors), so you can find a large variety of (video)cameras (including some of the latest digital models), films, batteries or other accessories. Most processing labs are situated in the downtown.

shopping with limited budget

by Lecaro about IDM

Here the prices are lower than in the others shops or malls... this isn't a mall is something like a market place... but some good things... you should be able to choose... clothes or accessories not much... depends how much you want to buy...

Different rooms and mixed crowds

by Romanian_Bat about Grand Cafe Galleron

The Grand Cafe Galleron got its name from the architect that designed the buildings of the National Bank and of the Romanian Athenaeum. Every room has been designed (and subsequently furnished) in a different style. If you go there with friends, you might like the Library Room. If you go with your business partner or with your lover, you might book the Cigar Room. If you only want to have a (great) mushroom soup, you could try the main room by the entrance. Otherwise, you could very well try the Orangerie with its tall chairs and fine view to the street nearby. The wi-fi room (the central room of the house) provides free internet access to guests. The service is very good and the place served a great breakfast, as well as some fine main dishes (the calamari and the assortment of cheeses are especially recommended). Just as a reminder that you are in Bucharest, toilets are located down the same hall with the kitchen, and all waiters / people going and coming from the toilet go through the non smoking room.
