Shopping in Bucharest

Despite its large strata of designer stores and boutiques (mostly along Bulevardul Magheru and Calea Victoriei), Bucharest isn't exactly a shopper's paradise and we'll tell you why: it's freakin' expensive. There's little you can get here that you can't back home, and you're likely to pay double for it in Buch.

So, where does this leave you? Bucharest's best bargains lie in its dustiest bins: those of the delightful antique shops of Lipscani and weekend market stalls of Piata Obor. Here you can find a range of unique gifts and spontaneous souvenirs from glass work, peasant handicrafts and Orthodox iconography, to communist and Nazi memorabilia. Hedge the malls and have a go at what mom and pop have been hiding all these years - Happy hunting!

Reviews about Shopping in Bucharest

A place kind of unique in bucharest. It will definitely suit you if you search for something different and a very friendly atmosphere.

I only go there for the cinema. Not too many shops though so it is not the best place if you go for diversity in shopping.

Amzei market is no more (as of 9.2011).It has been displaced by new buildings. There are some people selling fruit and veg informally from car boots....

My favourite way to kill a few hours, browsing through a bookshop, and this one was great with an excellent selection. Good stuff!

I can't say there's anything particularly special about this shopping centre, other than its (huge) side. However, there is a wide variety of shops so if you like spending an entire day shopping (or if it's raining during your trip), this is a good place to go.

Romanian markets are amazing. The fresh food is just fantastic and the shopkeepers seem disinterested until you walk up then they're just super friendly and helpful. Don't miss.
