I thought that stories of stray dogs were nothing more than tales from paranoid travelers, but when I saw many stray dogs on the streets fighting, biting each other, starving and bleeding on the streets, I realized that it was more than just a tale.
The stray dogs became a problem when Ceausescu demolished large part of Bucharest and moved people in the concrete cages where they couldn't have dogs as pets, so they let them loose on the streets.
What to do: Do not touch, taunt, feed or yell at any of stray dogs you encounter, just ignore them. They won't attack if not provoked. Hopefully.

Be careful to few things:
- do not change money on the street, use a bank or an exchange office;
- be careful to your bag especially in the crowd or in public transportation - that doesn't mean that you will be attacked but if you are a kind of dreamer, not careful with his/her belongings, you could have the chance of remaining without money or camera;
- try to call for a taxi not to take one from the street (it might cost you more if you take one from the street).
If you will be careful to these things you will have a good experience in Bucharest.

No problems in Bucharest, we were drinking beer in the street until midnight, there where homless people around, some drunk people, but not problem at, all, kebaps are open and you have free and clean bathrooms in metro station, all very calm, good ambiance.
The only problem is the dogs in the street, there are big groups of them, otherwise all is pretty safe, more than Paris, london or any USA city.

Cars and drivers may be a constant problem in central Bucharest. Traffic signs and rules may exist but noone seem to follow them. People seem to drive on everywhere when possible. Cars often park on pavements and block other cars from getting around.

If you end up in Bucuresti by train and want to use a taxi, it is certain that you will be charged double or more for the ride than if you take the taxi from somewhere else. There is no way around it unless your luggage is very light. Try your negotiating skills - you might save a couple of dollars.

Lots of street dogs!
Better don't feed them, because otherwise a lot more will appear.
Not generally aggressive though!
