Romania Shopping

  • Shop till you drop!

    Baneasa Shopping City located 8 kilometers north of the city of Bucharest is really a large mega mall. It has more than 250 stores and eateries including a large hypermarket known as Carrefour. This mega mall was our first shopping center that we visited in Bucharest. We spent six hours shopping for clothing and other items especially electrical...

  • Yet another mega mall in the city

    Liberty Center is the smallest of the four mega malls we have visited in the city of Bucharest but has quite impressive glass facade on its main entrance as depicted on our first two photographs above. It is located at the intersection of Calea Rahovei and Sos Progresului. We had actually planned to visit the fifth mega mall known as Bucharest Mall...

  • Only mega mall in the city linked to...

    Sun Plaza is one of the most beautiful shopping malls in the city of Bucharest. It has more than 150 stores, services and eateries occupying a total floor area of approximately 80,000 square metres. It has 15 screen cineplex with more than 2,000 car parking spaces at the basement. This shopping mall as with many other mega malls in the city are...

  • A great shopping entertainment centre in...

    AFI Palace Mega Mall is the largest and the most beautiful shopping mall in the city of Bucharest. Many visitors come here not only for shopping but also for entertainment and food outlets. There are a total of at least 300 stores, services and eateries with at least 2,500 parking spaces at the basement. The total area of this mega mall is...


    I must admit I was quite surprised to see many large Carrefour shopping centres in Romania.Our reason for stopping at one, was to take a break from driving. We went inside and found a place that sold coffee and cake, so this is where we had our rest. Afterwards, we had a look around the centre and were quite impressed with the array of shops.I...

  • RUGS

    I guess extra money is brought into the house by the women making rugs and then displaying them on their fences, hoping somebody will stop to buy one. Most are hand woven in a mix of traditional vegetable-dyed yarns combined with commercial dyed yarns to make traditional patterns and colors. Rugs from Oltenia reflect nature, with flowers, trees and...

  • Transylvania sweets II.

    market and events venue Chimney cakesLeavened sweet dough, baked on charcoal.Initially, a thin frosting on it. Is flavored with cinnamon, cocoa and nuts.

  • Transylvania sweets I.

    Rahat - the delicious fruit sugarCut cake into small pieces is also an excellent decorative element.

  • Local markets & Italian clothes & shoes

    Stuff from the local markets. We brought back honey, nuts, jams, dried peppers. To much to carry!Italian clothes and shoes at knock down prices. Made in Italy linen summer jacket £25.00

  • Romanian souvenirs

    I can't say I was thrilled with the variety and quality of souvenirs in Romania. This was a bit surprising for a country with such rich folklore. Wooden crafts (but unfortunately not in the artistic perfection found in Maramures), painted icons (if you like naive iconography this can be great), carpets, tableclothes etc. I wouldn't like to mention...

  • Handcrafted Easter Eggs -- and more

    The Gift Shop at the Peasant Museum in Bucharest has a lot of great things to bring back home: check out the handpainted folk tiles, and the genuine high quality (secondhand donated, I assume) folk costume articles. Near the cash register is a big basket of intricately hand decorated Easter eggs in great designs (a bit more $ than at the painted...

  • Local craft

    As I usually stop by local crafts, I did so in Romania and I got enchanted with colours and patterns i saw- my favourite stuff are traditional colours and patterns of carpets. As you are buying -don't forget to haggle-the beginning price of the carpet I wanted to buy was 3600000 leu (approx.100 euro then) and it ended at 1200000 which was also...

  • Prices

    Prices are quite cheap in Romania, it's about £1 for 20 cigarettes, less than £2 for a bottle of wine and, the food is also excellent value. Imported goods, on the other hand, are not so cheap, expect to pay western prices for these. It also pays to haggle if you're buying from the markets.Romanian wine is excellent, you must buy some!

  • Shopping, Vampire Style

    Yes it's a kitschy tourist trap, but you have to appreciate the variety of swords, wood-carved scary-masks and Dracula t-shirts the vendors at Bran Castle offer. Upstairs in the Dracula Club (I don't know if it's really called that) there's lots of weapon replicas, hand-painted stemware (which I don't think is local, but may be) and less...

  • Ceramics in Herzei

    Coming into Herzei, one of the towns known for its ceramics, you'll drive past a group of about six or seven little roadside shops selling ceramics. One actually makes the pieces on-site and are happy to share their craft with visitors.Each shop bears the work of an artist, each with their own designs and unique brand of art. Most have some version...

  • unusual souvenirs

    look around in rural areas for carved wooden objects and pottery, also wild boar skins make an unusual souvenir that can legally be taken out of the country. A wild boar skin shouldn't be much more than €40 - 60

  • Been there, bought the tee-shirt

    Don't laugh - there used to be a Dracula listed in the New York telephone book. He probably moved there because he wouldn't look out of place in a crowd of New Yorkers. Nowadays, Dracula tours are big business in Romania. They take you around the spooky Transylvanian countryside and show you castles supposedly associated with Vlad the Impaler,...

  • Fur

    I know it's a tricky subject but I must say: the fur on sale as coats and hats is simply incredible. Of course you wouldn't buy and one would certainly not be able to import it to their own country but still...... it is very very impressive.
